THE OATH OF HIPPOCRATES 

I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most sacred that I will be loyal to the profession 
of medicine and just and generous to its members. That I will lead my life and practice 
my art in uprightness and honor. That into whatsoever house I shall enter it shall be for 
the good of the sick to the utmost of my power. I hold myself aloof from wrong, from cor- 
ruption, from the tempting of others to vice. That I will exercise my art solely for the 
cure of my patients, and will give no drug, perform no operation for a criminal purpose 
even if solicited, far less suggest it. That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives of men 
which is not fitting to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret. These things I do promise 
and in proportion as I am faithful to this my oath, may happiness and good repute be 
ever mine; the opposite if I shall be forsworn. 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore is accredited by the Middle States Association 
of Colleges and Schools. The School of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison 
Committee on Medical Education, the accrediting body for the Association of American 
Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association.

Profile 



Established in 1807, the University of Maryland School of Medicine is the fifth oldest med- 
ical school in the United States and the first to institute a residency training program. The 
School of Medicine was the founding school of the University of Maryland, and today it is 
an integral part of the 11 -campus University of Maryland System. On the University of 
Maryland at Baltimore campus, the School of Medicine serves as foundation for a large aca- 
demic health center that combines medical education, biomedical research, patient care 
and community service. While its traditional excellence remains constant, the School of 
Medicine and its national reputation continue to grow. 

The School of Medicine boasts the oldest building in the Western hemisphere in 
continuous use for medical education, the meticulously restored Davidge Hall, built in 
1812. The 14-floor Bressler Research Building and the nine-floor Medical School Teach- 
ing Facility, two major classroom and laboratory buildings, were completed within the past 
18 years. The mid-rise Biomedical Research Facility was completed in late 1992. Under 
construction and scheduled for opening in 1995, the Health Sciences Facility is a new 
research and teaching facility providing an additional 83,570 net square feet, with the 
School of Medicine occupying approximately 80,000 net square feet. This new facility will 
provide the much-needed connection of the Medical School Teaching Facility to Howard 
Hall and the Bressler Research Building. With completion of the Health Sciences Facility, 
all major medical school research buildings will then be physically linked to the University 
Hospital and the new Veterans Affairs Medical Center. 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore campus continues to expand as well. A 
state-of-the art Veterans Affairs Medical Center, immediately adjacent and connected by 
bridge to the University of Maryland Medical System (University Hospital), opened in 
1993. The Gudeisky Tower, a new University Hospital patient tower, opened in 1994, and 
a new facility to house the ever-expanding Health Sciences Library is in the planning stage. 

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT BALTIMORE 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore, designated "UniversityCenter" by the city of Bal- 
timore administration, is the founding campus of Maryland's public university system and 
a thriving center for life sciences research and community service. Seven graduate And pro- 
fessional schools — the Dental School and Schools of Law, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy .

global implications. Areas of multidisciplinary research, scholarship and community action 
include AIDS, aging, schizophrenia, hypertension, lead poisoning, cancer, child abuse and 
homelessness, offering students a wide selection of field experiences. 

New partnerships among university components and with the University of Mary- 
land Medical Center and Veterans Affairs Medical Center continually strengthen inter- 
disciplinary research, education and service endeavors.

MILESTONES 

The foundations of the School of Medicine date back to 1789 with the organization of the 
Medical Society of Baltimore. Baltimore physicians were decreasing in number after the 
Revolutionary War and, foreseeing the possibility of charlatans practicing the art of medi- 
cine, they began to train young physicians to succeed them. The founders of the medical 
society began instruction in anatomy, surgery and chemistry for prospective physicians in 
their own homes. There was strong citizen protest of anatomical dissection and soon the 
physician-teachers petitioned the Maryland State Legislature to establish a college of med- 
icine on a firm basis and under the protection of the law. On December 18, 1807, a charter 
incorporating the College of Medicine of Maryland was approved by the Maryland Assembly. 

The fledgling "College of Medicine of Maryland" was in need of a proper building, 
and on January 20, 1807, an act was passed authorizing a lottery — not to exceed $40,000 — 
for the benefit of the medical college's building fund. Over the next 15 years, seven more 
lotteries were authorized to benefit the school. 

Dr. John Beale Davidge, a native Marylander and a physician trained in Scotland, 
became dean and took the chair in surgery. His founding faculty were Dr. James Cocke 
(anatomy and physiology), Mr. James Shaw (chemistry) and Dr. Nathaniel Potter (theory 
and practice of medicine). From Col. John Eager Howard, a Revolutionary War hero and 
former Maryland governor, Davidge, Shaw and Cocke bought land that was "quite some 
distance from town" to protect against unruly mobs who had demolished the doctors' first 
anatomical theater in violent opposition to the dissection of human cadavers. From the 
school's very beginning there was strong emphasis on bedside teaching. The first class of 



2 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



seven received clinical instruction at the Baltimore Almshouse, a warehouse, a theater and 
infirmary for the poor. 

Davidge Hall was designed by Robert Carey Long Sr. and modeled after the Pan- 
theon in Rome. It was completed in 1812. The first classes were held in the new building 
in 1813, the same year the College of Medicine of Maryland became the University of Mary- 
land. In addition to two expansive circular amphitheaters, one atop the other, Davidge Hall 
was built with dissecting cubbyholes, secret stairways and hidden exits that afforded early 
students and their professors safe passage from angry mobs. It is said that the 1812 British 
bombardment of Fort McHenry was viewed from the veranda of Davidge Hall, while a few 
miles away Francis Scott Key was writing the "Star Spangled Banner." Davidge Hall was 
meticulously renovated in the early 1980's. 

The Baltimore Infirmary, forerunner of the University of Maryland Hospital, was 
built opposite Davidge Hall in 1823, on the site of the present Baltimore Student Union. 
It was the first hospital founded by a medical school for the express purpose of clinical 
instruction. It was also the site of the first intramural residency program established in the 
United States. Senior medical students lived in the hospital while helping to care for 
patients. The building was still in active use until 1973, when its clinics were moved into 
the newly constructed north-wing addition to the University of Maryland Hospital and the 
old building razed. 

In curriculum development, the School of Medicine claims a long and proud tra- 
dition as an innovative leader. Maryland was the first to recognize the value of the basic sci- 
ences. In 1 800, Dr. John Crawford, whose personal library became the nucleus of Maryland's 
medical library, was the first to vaccinate Baltimoreans against smallpox. As early as 1810 
he had presented evidence of the contagious character of tuberculosis. In 1833 the school 
introduced the first preventive medicine course. 




The techniques of auscultation and percussion wore taught at the School of Med- 
icine tor the first tune in Baltimore as early as 1841, and in 1 S44 Dr. David Stewart, the first 
professor of pharmacy in the United States, initiated his lectures at Marvland. In 1848 
Maryland became the first school to require anatomical dissection, followed six years later 
by the introduction of compulsory courses in gross and microscopic pathology, c Compulsory 
courses in experimental physiology and microscopy were introduced six years later. A mile- 
stone in cancer research occurred in 185 J, when Maryland's Dr. Francis 1 Donaldson became 



PROFILE • I 



the first person in America to advocate biopsy and microscopic diagnosis of malignancy. 
Maryland was the first to establish chairs in the diseases of women and children (1867) and 
diseases of the eye and ear ( 1873 ) . 

Mergers with the Baltimore Medical College in 1913 and the College of Physicians 
and Surgeons in 1915 enabled the school to expand its clinical facilities and faculty. Early 
in the twentieth century, Drs. James Rowland and Louis Douglas initiated off-site obstetri- 
cal care and home delivery, prenatal clinics and an Rh blood typing laboratory, significantly 
improving infant and maternal health. 

The School of Medicine has had its share of medical breakthroughs, including in 
more recent decades discovery of the thyrotropic hormone, the first successful antibiotic 
treatment of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, the first specific cure for typhoid fever and the 
successful treatment of diabetic keto-acidosis with low dose insulin. In 1967 the school 
began one of the first formalized family practice residency programs in the country. 

The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, which opened in 1961, serves as a 
worldwide model for emergency medical treatment. The University of Maryland Cancer 
Center is a strong participant in new drug development and research, and virtually every 
important drug in use in oncology today has been tested in this program. 

The rest, of course, is not yet history, but this institution's history indeed contin- 
ues to be written. 




EDUCATION 

The School of Medicine will initiate a new curriculum with the August 1994 entering fresh- 
man class. The new curriculum is different from the previous, more traditional curriculum 
in the following areas: the basic sciences will no longer be taught as discipline-specific 
"a mrses" but will be integrated and taught as "Mocks," using interdisciplinary teaching with 
both basic and clinical science teachers. Committees chaired by faculty members from 
major block courses will determine course content and teaching methodologies. Lectures, 
small discussion groups and laboratories will be used with extensive time available tor self- 
learning. Problem-based learning will be tested in several blocks during the 1994-95 acad- 
emic year with the intention of more widespread use in the 1995-96 freshman year. The 
sophomore year also will use the interdisciplinary "blocks" approach as the freshman class 

4 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



moves into the second-year curriculum in 1995-96. There will be a marked reduction in 
contact hours with an emphasis on independent study with availability ot mentors and 
learning resources. Another major change will be a half-day course dedicated to the Intro- 
duction to Clinical Practice which will begin at the inception of the freshman year and con- 
tinue throughout the first two years. This course will include instruction in interviewing 
techniques, physical examination, intimate human behavior, ethical issues and the dynam- 
ics of ambulatory care delivery. Much of this two-year longitudinal experience will be off- 
site in clinical settings. Changes within the last two years beginning in 1996 will include a 
mandatory ambulatory month rotation in Family Medicine, emphasis on ambulatory teach- 
ing in all other clinical rotations, and a longitudinal half-day experience in a clinical set- 
ting in which the student will have continuity of care for patients and families. 




The advisory system will continue with each student having a basic science and a 
clinical science advisor when possible. 

The ties between the medical school and the hospital enrich and enhance both 
medical education and health care. All physicians practicing at the University of Maryland 
Medical System and the Medical Faculty Foundation Professional Building have School of 
Medicine faculty appointments and are actively involved in the educational process in 
addition to supervising residency training for more than 600 postgraduate positions at the 
University Hospital and affiliated hospitals. The Medical System includes a 747-bed teach- 
ing hospital, Cancer Center and R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center ym campus, as 
well as the Montebello Rehabilitation Center and the James Lawrence Kernan 1 [ospital ofl 
campus. 

Medical care and education are further enhanced by the relocation o( the Balti- 
more Veterans Affairs Medical Center to this campus in a new state-of-the-art hospital 
adjacent to the School of Medicine and the University 1 [ospital. Together, these facilities 
serve as the major clinical training sites as well as a source of comprehensn e health c are for 
the local community and the state. The school also has established clinical affiliations 
throughout the region, giving students unusual flexibility in clinical experienc 

In an effort to nurture more interest m basic research and to meet the increasing 
demand for physician-scientists, the school otters a combined MD/PhD program in 10 med- 
ical disciplines and an Ml VMS program in preventive medicine. Although the schedule 
can he flexible, MD/PhD students typic ally complete the freshman and sophomore years of 



PROF1LI • 



medical school, enroll as graduate students and then begin their clinical clerkships. Com- 
bined MD/PhD degree studies can be completed within six-to-eight years. 

Medical students in the track leading to the MD/MS in preventive medicine may 
complete the dual-degree program in five years. The fifth year is counted fully as one year 
of preventive medicine residency training by the American Board of Preventive Medicine. 

Graduate programs are offered at the master's and doctoral levels in the basic sci- 
ences. There is a baccalaureate program in medical and research technology and a master's 
program in physical therapy as well as a number of interdisciplinary programs with both ser- 
vice and research components. Continuing education programs are sponsored for practic- 
ing physicians. 

The School of Medicine offers students an excellent spectrum of resources and 
field experiences. Located along the Baltimore-Washington corridor, the school is in the 
midst of a great concentration of health care institutions, research centers, government 
agencies and professional associations. 

RESEARCH 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine is one of the country's fastest growing 
research institutions, with total awards of $86.3 million in FY '94. Maryland is the only med- 
ical school in the nation to receive two Health Careers Opportunities Program (HCOP) 
awards, a Centers of Excellence (COE) award and a Fogarty International Minority Train- 
ing Program award in one year. We are one of only eight institutions nationwide to receive 
a Center for Minority Health Research Grant, and we hold two Patient Outcome Research 
Trial (PORT) awards, with funding exceeding more than $12 million. 

In the last few years the school has led the nation's public medical schools with the 
highest percentage increase in National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, with six 
departments ranking among the top 10 in the country for NIH funding of public medical 
research programs: epidemiology and preventive medicine; physiology; neurology; obstet- 
rics and gynecology; pathology and psychiatry. Two of those departments, epidemiology 
and preventive medicine and physiology, rank in the top 10 in funding of all the nation's 
126 public and private medical schools. 

That funding, combined with the expertise and cutting-edge research of the 
school's life scientists, has produced some remarkable breakthroughs: 

• discovery that ouabain, a human hormone, is linked to hypertension 

• development o{ formestane, a drug that combats recurrent breast cancer by denying 
tumors the estrogen they need to grow 

• a genetically engineered cholera vaccine 

• ,i test allowing earlier detection of the AIDS-causing HIV virus 

• led multicenter research studies in proving efficacy of beta interferon as a treatment for 
multiple sclerosis 

In the last several years the school has produced more than 100 invention disclo- 
sures and nearly 40 patents, establishing Maryland as a hub for life sciences activity in the 

6 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



region. Technologies developed at the School of Medicine have formed the basis for at least 
five Baltimore-area companies. 

Other research projects are examining how intervention can make a difference for 
inner city youngsters trying to avoid the perils of HIV infection, drug use and street vio- 
lence. Another project is tracking how intensive outreach can keep trauma victims from 
becoming repeat shock trauma patients. 




COMMUNITY SERVICE 

The School of Medicine's most important mission continues to remain the same after nearly 
two centuries, that of educating men and women to meet the health care needs of the peo- 
ple of Maryland and beyond. The School of Medicine is a vital part of the west Baltimore 
neighborhood in which it resides, and its faculty, staff and students are increasingly invoked 
in activities that affect our neighbors. 

Each year the School of Medicine students provide hundreds of thousands of hours 
of service in hospitals, clinics, homeless shelters and schools throughout the state. Program 
involvement includes: 

• S.T.O.P. AIDS — Student/Teacher Outreach Program — sends volunteer students into 
Baltimore City Public School sixth grades to discuss HIV prevention. 

• The Health Care and Homeless Project — allows student- to spend tunc at homeless shel- 
ters providing health care screening and educ.it ion. 

• Sexual Assault Course — enables students to provide counseling and advocac \ for sexual 
assault victims who come into the emergency room. 

Many faculty members also provide millions of uncompensated dollars in primary 
and preventive care to the residents of Baltimore through programs such as: 

• Housecall — physicians visit elderly individuals in their homes and provide medic al treat 

ment and follow-up care. 

PROF1LI • i 



Families- in-Transition — health care for homeless children and their families. The pro- 
gram provides comprehensive evaluation and case management of physical and mental 
health needs. 

Paquin Family Health Center — a school-based health center at Paquin High School, 
Baltimore City's school for pregnant young women and teen mothers. Total health care 
from Ob/Gyn, pre- and post-natal care and psychosocial support is provided for these 
young women and their children. 




THE CAMPUS AND BEYOND 



The School of Medicine is an integral part of one of the country's first centers for profes- 
sional education and research. Its 32-acre urban campus, shared with six other professional 
schools, the University of Maryland Medical System and the Baltimore Veterans Affairs 
Medical Center, also hosts the Hope Lodge and Baltimore Ronald McDonald House, both 
offering low cost housing and a home-atmosphere for pediatric and adult outpatients and 
their families receiving medical treatment in the Baltimore area. 

Opportunities abound for faculty and students to join with other health and 
human service professionals in interdisciplinary study, informal discourse and collaborative 
clinical practice and research, offering students a wide selection of field experiences. 

In addition to professional opportunities, the city of Baltimore offers a stimulating 
environment in which to live and study. Baltimore residents enjoy the sophistication of a 
large metropolitan city combined with easy accessibility to surrounding mountains, beaches 
and rural areas. The many attractions and resources of Washington, D.C. are less than a 
one-hour drive from Baltimore. 

Having been the setting tor significant events in the history of our country and a 
renowned foreign-commerce seaport, Baltimore maintains a strong feeling of the past, typ- 
ified by the many charming neighborhoods of restored houses and an abundance of historic 
monuments and buildings. Within easy walking distance of the campus is the nationally 
acclaimed Inner Harbor area where Harborplace, the National Aquarium and the Mary- 
land Science Center and other facilities share the festival atmosphere of the harbor with 
hotels, shops and restaurants, water taxis, pleasure and tour boats and a wide variety of fre- 

8 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



quently visiting international ships. Restored and newly constructed townhouses and con- 
dominium complexes share the waterviews, excitement and atmosphere of downtown 
living. 

Warm weather months signal festival time in Baltimore with such offerings as 
Artscape, the Baltimore City Fair and the many ethnic festivals that celebrate the city's 
diverse populations. As a cultural center, Baltimore has offerings to please the most dis- 
criminating, including a world-class symphony orchestra, excellent museums and libraries, 
professional theater, ballet and opera. 

For sports fans, Baltimore boasts a varied menu. Oriole baseball, CFL football, 
indoor soccer and ice hockey, collegiate and club lacrosse, horseracing and steeplechase in 
the suburban counties are some of the offerings. The new home of the Baltimore Orioles, 
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, is but a two-block stroll from the University of Maryland at 
Baltimore campus. The nearby Chesapeake Bay offers unparalleled opportunities for boat- 
ing enthusiasts and water sportsmen. Gastronomy aficionados will delight in experiencing 
the seafood for which the region is famous.

Admissions Information 



APPLICATION 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine is a participant in the American Medical 
College Application Service ( AMCAS). All requests for a place in the first-year class must 
be initiated by an AMCAS application. AMCAS application request cards can be obtained 
from AMCAS, Suite 201, 2450 N Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 200374131, or from 
the Committee on Admissions, School of Medicine, University of Maryland at Baltimore, 
655 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201-1559. In addition, they are usually 
available from the premedical advisory office at the undergraduate college. AMCAS appli- 
cation material is ready for distribution about mid-May of the year in which an individual 
plans to submit an application to the School of Medicine. 

For the School of Medicine, the AMCAS application is the first of a two-stage 
application process and is due in Washington by November 1. The Committee on Admis- 
sions thoroughly reviews the AMCAS application and, based on the information contained 
in it, determines whether the second stage (School of Medicine) application form will be 
sent. An application fee ($40) payable to the University of Maryland School of Medicine 
is sent only with submission of the second stage application form, which is due by Decem- 
ber 1. All applicants who are determined to be residents of the state of Maryland are invited 
to submit a second-stage application. Nonresidents will either be sent second-stage appli- 
cation material or will be informed that the Committee on Admissions cannot continue 
the application process. 

The application form and supporting credentials should be filed as early as possi- 
ble in the application period. Please do not have supporting credentials sent prior to sub- 
mission of the second-stage application. 

The applicant must assume responsibility for assuring that all required credentials 
and the completed application packet are filed with and received by the Committee on 
Admissions. The applicant is expected to respond truthfully and completely to all questions 
on the AMCAS and School of Medicine application forms. An applicant who provides 
false or misleading information may be denied admission or, if enrolled before discovery of 
irregularity in the application process, may be dismissed from the school. 

EARLY DECISION PROGRAM 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine has an Early Decision Program for appli- 
cants who are sure that their first choice of medical schools is the University of Maryland. 
The Committee on Admissions interviews selected early decision applicants and makes a 
decision on these students before considering the regular pool of applicants. By applying for 
early decision, the highly qualified applicant avoids having to make numerous other appli- 
cations. Applicants with less competitive academic credentials, or those without the sup- 
port of their premedical advisor, are discouraged from applying through this program. 

The early decision applicant must apply only to this school by the AMCAS dead- 
line of August 1. Applicants must provide all supplementary information by September 1. 
Interviews will take place at the medical school between mid-August and late September. 



10 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



No one will be accepted without an interview. If offered a place by this school, the appli- 
cant cannot apply elsewhere. All decisions for this program are made by October 1. 

The Committee on Admissions can make one of three decisions for each early deci- 
sion applicant: 1) acceptance; 2) rejection; or 3) placement into the regular applicant pool 
for review at a later time. Each applicant will be notified promptly o( the Committee on 
Admissions' decision so that those not accepted through this program can apply elsewhere. 

Individuals who apply through the Early Decision Program cannot apply to any 
other medical school until they are notified that they have not been accepted through this 
program at the University oi Maryland. 




APPLICANT SELECTION CRITERIA 

Academic achievement, extracurricular activities, personal characteristics, recommenda- 
tions from the premedical committee or college instructors, scores on the Medical College 
Admissions Test (MCAT) and personal interview all are considered in the committee's 
evaluation o{ an applicant. Academic achievement and/or high MCAT scores do not in 
themselves ensure acceptance. Of significant concern to the Committee on Admissions are 
the applicant's character, personality and potential to perform as a medical student and as 
a future physician. Personal integrity, emotional maturity and stability, motivation, inter- 
ests and activities outside the classroom and interpersonal and communication skills are all 
carefully evaluated. Candidates must be proficient in both written and spoken English. 

Applications from persons with outstanding credentials from other areas of the 
United States and Canada are welcome and will receive all possible considcr.it ion. Prefer- 
ence in the selection process is given to residents of the state of Maryland. Applications can 
be processed only from citizens o\ the United States and Canada or from individuals who 
reside in this country on a permanent resident visa. Occasionally an applicant residing in 
the United States holds a visa permitting him/her to live in the United States indefinitely 
and to establish residency in one of the states. Applications are accepted from these indi- 
viduals. Those on a time-limited visa, such as a student visa, are not eligible tor admission 
to the School of Medicine.

ONS INFORMATION 



ADMISSION TO THE FIRST-YEAR CLASS 

The student should plan a four-year undergraduate curriculum with a suitable arts or sci- 
ence major leading to a bachelor's degree. The Committee on Admissions encourages all 
applicants to pursue a course of study that is rigorous, scholarly and focused on areas that 
are intellectually challenging and interesting to the applicant. The Committee on Admis- 
sions seeks to admit students with diverse academic backgrounds. 

A minimum of 90 semester hours of acceptable college credit is required, exclusive 
of physical education and military science. These must be earned in colleges or universities 
whose names appear on the current list of Accredited Institutions of Higher Education as 
compiled by the National Committee of Regional Accrediting Agencies of the United 
States. The only courses accepted are those that are approved for credit towards a degree by 
the university or college attended. Preparation at a foreign college or university must be sup- 
plemented by a year or more of work in an approved university or college in the United 
States. 

Successful completion of the following courses and credits is required prior to 
matriculation at the School of Medicine. 

Semester Hours 

Biological sciences 8 

General chemistry 8 

Organic chemistry 6 

General physics 8 

English 6 

No more than 60 hours can be accepted from accredited junior colleges and then, 
only if these credits are validated by a college offering a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree. 
Advanced placement credits for science courses taken in high school may be accepted if the 
applicant's college (which grants the bachelor's degree) has given college credit for those 
courses. Other exceptions may be granted at the discretion of the Committee on Admissions. 

Selected students who enter the School of Medicine from colleges that usually 
grant a baccalaureate degree after the successful completion of the first year of medical 
school are responsible for: ( 1 ) providing a certificate from the college or university certify- 
ing eligibility for this degree; and (2) meeting all requirements of the School of Medicine 
for advancement to the second year. 

The MCAT must be taken no later than fall of the year preceding the desired year 
of entrance and must be taken within three years of the anticipated date of matriculation. 
Applicants should write to the MCAT Program Office, 2255 North Dubuque Road, P.O. 
Box 4056, Iowa City, Iowa 52243, for further information and registration forms, or to the 
Committee on Admissions. 

A letter of recommendation from the undergraduate premedical committee or an 
officially designated premedical advisor is required. If the applicant's undergraduate college 
or university does not have a premedical committee or advisor, three letters of recommen- 
dation are required from faculty who have taught the applicant. Two of these letters must 
come from instructors who have taught the applicant in the sciences. Applicants who have 
earned advanced degrees or who have been out of school for a significant length of time 
should submit a letter of recommendation from each component of their education or major 

12 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



work-related experience. Letters of recommendation should be submitted by individuals 
qualified to evaluate the applicant's accomplishments, productivity and character in an 
objective and critical manner. All letters of recommendation should be sent directly to the 
Committee on Admissions. They are not to be sent to AMCAS. 

Each applicant's credentials are evaluated by the Committee on Admissions to 
determine if an interview is to be granted. All interviews are conducted at the University 
of Maryland School of Medicine. These interviews are scheduled in advance by invitation. 

In its selection process, the Committee on Admissions must use the applicant's res- 
idency status that is in effect on the last day applications can be received (December 1). 
The University of Maryland at Baltimore office of records and registration is responsible for 
all decisions regarding residency. All questions, complaints and appeals regarding residency 
status should be directed to that office: 621 West Lombard Street, Baltimore, Maryland 
21201-1575; 410-706-7480, not to the School of Medicine Office of Admissions. Nonres- 
idents who matriculate at the School of Medicine should plan to maintain that status 
throughout the four years of medical school. Current standards for reclassification to in- 
state status are rigorous and make reclassification difficult. 

For further information regarding the admissions process in general, the applicant 
is referred to a booklet entitled "Medical School Admissions Requirements," which can be 
obtained from:

ADVANCED STANDING 

Students who have attended medical school in the United States are eligible to file appli- 
cation tor admission to the second- and third-year classes only. Applications must be sub- 
mitted between January 1 and May 1 oi the desired year oi admission. Applicants for 
ad\ anced standing must meet .ill oi the current first-year entrance requirements and must 
present acceptable medical school credentials and a medical sc hool record based on courses

ADMISSIONS INFORMATION • 



MCAT examination and completed the undergraduate prerequisites. Applicants for admis- 
sion with advanced standing to the year III class also are required to take and pass Step I of 
the United States Medical Licensing Examination. 

No student who has been dismissed from any medical school will be considered, 
unless his/her former dean submits a letter addressed to the Committee on Admissions con- 
firming that the student has been reinstated in good standing and is eligible for promotion. 
No student can be considered who is not eligible for promotion at the time of transfer. 

Persons who already hold the degree Doctor of Medicine cannot be admitted to 
the medical school as candidates for that degree from this university. This is true for both 
advanced standing and first-year applicants. Individuals whose graduate work has been in 
the fields of dentistry, osteopathic medicine or podiatric medicine are not candidates for 
advanced standing. 

Citizens of the United States who are studying medicine in foreign medical schools 
may apply for admission to the year III class only. Application must be made no later than 
May 1 of the desired year admission. Applicants for advanced standing must meet all of the 
first-year entrance requirements, including the MCAT examination and undergraduate 
prerequisites, and submit acceptable medical school credentials as well as a medical school 
record based on courses equivalent to similar courses in this school. Students in foreign 
schools must take and pass Step I of the United States Medical Licensing Examination.

DETERMINATION OF IN-STATE STATUS 

An initial determination oi in-state status for admission, tuition and charge-differential 
purposes will be made by the university at the time a student's application for admission is

for Admission, Tuition and Charge-Differential Purposes was changed effective with the fall 
1991 semester. There are several significant changes in the criteria for determining eligi- 
bility for in-state status. Students currently classified as nonresidents are encouraged to 
review the new policy. Copies of the policy are available at the registrar's office, office of

FEES 

The application and/or matriculation fee partially defrays the cost of processing applications for 
admission and enrollment data in the professional schools. These fees are not refundable. 

The tuition charges meets a portion of the costs for the educational program and 
supporting services. 

Student activities fees are used to meet the costs of various student activities, student 
publications and cultural programs. The Student Government Association, in cooperation 
with the Dean's Office, recommends expenditure of the fees collected. A student health fee 
is charged to help defray the cost of providing health services, which include routine exam- 
inations and emergency care. Acceptable medical insurance is required in addition to the 
student health fee. 

The supporting facilities fee is used in support of the expansion of various facilities 
on campus that are not funded or are partially funded through other sources. 

The academic service fee covers transcripts for life. 

Diploma fees are charged to help defray costs involved with graduation and com- 
mencement. 

All checks and money orders should be made payable to the University of Mary- 
land for the exact amount of the actual bill. 

A service charge is assessed for dishonored checks. It is payable for each check 
returned unpaid by the drawee bank because of insufficient funds, stopped payment, post- 
dating or if it has been drawn against uncollected items. 

• For checks up to $24.99— $5 

• For checks from $25 and up — $25 

Late registration fees defray the cost of the special handling involved for those who 
do not complete their registration on the prescribed days. No diploma, certificate or tran- 
script will be issued to a student until all financial obligations to the university have been 
satisfied. 

The university reserves the right to make such changes in fees and other charges 
as may be necessary. 

REGISTRATION 

To attend classes at the University of Maryland at Baltimore campus it is necessary to 
process an official registration. All students are required to register each term in accordance 
with current registration procedures. The balance of tuition and fees is due and payable on 
the dates specified for registration. Registration is not completed until all financial obliga- 
tions are satisfied. Students who do not complete their registration, including the payment 
o\ their bill on the registration days, will be subject to a late registration fee. 

Courses taken concurrently with a University o( Maryland at Baltimore registra- 
tion at another campus or institution must have program approval in advance by the appro- 
priate University of Maryland at Baltimore officials. Off-campus registration forms are 
available in each dean's office and in the offiee of records and registration. 

Although the university regularly mails bills to advance-registered students, it can- 
not assume responsibility of their receipt. If any student does not receive a bill prior to the 

16 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



beginning of a semester in which he or she has advance-registered, it is that student's 
responsibility to contact student accounting, Administration Building, during normal busi- 
ness hours. 

Students who arena-register or advance-register and subsequently decide not to 
attend UMAB must notify the office of records and registration, room 326, Baltimore Stu- 
dent Union, in writing, prior to the first day of instruction. If this office has not received a 
request for cancellation by 5:00 p.m. of the last day before instruction begins, the univer- 
sity will assume the student plans to attend and accepts the financial obligation. 

After classes begin, students who wish to terminate their registration must submit 
an application for withdrawal to the office of records and registration. Students are liable 
for all charges applicable at the time of the withdrawal. 

If a satisfactory settlement or agreement for settlement is not made with the busi- 
ness office within 10 days after a payment is due, the student is automatically barred from 
attendance at classes and will forfeit the other privileges of the School of Medicine. 

WITHDRAWAL 

Students who wish to leave the School of Medicine at any time during the academic year 
are required to file a letter of resignation with the dean. In addition, an Application for 
Withdrawal form bearing the proper signatures must be filed with the office of records and 
registration. The student must satisfy the authorities that he or she has no outstanding obli- 
gations to the school and must return his or her student identification card. 

If the above procedures are not completed, the student will not be entitled to hon- 
orable dismissal and will forfeit the right to any refunds to which that student would other- 
wise be entitled. The date used in computing refunds is the date the application for 
withdrawal is signed by the dean. 

ACADEMIC STANDING 

Students who voluntarily withdraw during an academic semester will be given no credit. 
Students are not permitted to resort to withdrawal in order to preclude current or impend- 
ing failures. Their standing on withdrawal will be recorded at the office of records and reg- 
istration. Students who withdraw from the medical school and later desire readmission must 
apply to the Committee on Admissions unless other arrangements have been made with 
the dean's written consent. 

REFUNDS 

Students officially withdrawing from the school will be credited for all academic fees 
charged to them less the matriculation fee, in accordance with the following schedule from 

the date instruction begins: 

• Two weeks or less 80 percent 

• Two to three weeks 60 percent 

• Three to tour weeks 40 percent 

FINANC1A1 INFORMATION • 17 



• Four to five weeks 20 percent 

• After five weeks percent 

LEAVES OF ABSENCE 

Students who are in good standing may be granted one year's leave of absence on request of 
the dean. Longer leaves can be arranged only under special circumstances with the excep- 
tion of those students in the combined MD/PhD program. 

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT 

Dissecting Instruments: At the beginning of the first year, all freshmen must possess a com- 
plete set of dissecting* instruments similar to those on display at the campus bookstore. 

Microscopes: All freshmen also must provide for themselves a standard micro- 
scope. All microscopes must conform to the following specifications: 

• Binocular 

• 10X oculars (wide field oculars are recommended, but not required) 

• Quadruple nose piece 

• Four parfocal objective lenses: 

30mm.,4X,0.1N.A. 

16 mm., 10X, 0.25 N.A. 

4mm.,43X,0.65N.A. 

1.8 mm., 97X, oil immersion, 1.25 N.A. 

• Mechanical stage to accommodate standard size microscopic slides (the stage need not 
be graduated) 

• Light source (built-in on base is preferable) 

• Substage condenser 

• A carrying case (recommended) 

Students are cautioned about purchasing used or odd-lot microscopes since some 
of the older instruments are in poor optical or mechanical condition. Second-hand micro- 
scopes should be approved by the department prior to purchase. 

Based on the determination of financial need, first-year medical students may 
qualify for loan of a microscope. 

Other Equipment: By the second year, medical students are required to have an 
ophthalmoscope, otoscope, a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope. The estimated cost of 
these items, plus other essentials such as lab coats, is $400 to $450.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

The School of Medicine's financial aid program is available to medical students who demon- 
strate financial need. Aid programs are centrally administered by Student Financial Aid, 
located in the Baltimore Student Union. To qualify for aid, students must apply annually and 
continue to meet certain eligibility requirements. Call student financial aid or stop by for fact 
sheets with detailed information on the application process and types of aid available. 

Aid packages often include a combination of loans, grants, scholarships, and part- 
time employment designed to meet 100 per cent of a student's needs. In addition to school 
resources, outside funding agencies make financial assistance available to qualified medical 
students. Priority filing date is March 15. 

Entering students may request financial aid applications from either the Commit- 
tee on Admissions or the student financial aid office. Students currently enrolled in the 
School of Medicine may obtain forms from: 

Student Financial Aid Office 
University of Maryland at Baltimore 
62 1 West Lombard Street, Room #334 
Baltimore, Maryland 21201-1575 
410 706-7347 

Student assistance is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Eligi- 
bility for financial aid is dependent upon the student maintaining good academic standing. 
When determining the amount to be awarded, the following are considered: ( 1 ) income, 
assets and resources of the student and student's family; (2) support available to the student 
from nonuniversity sources and (3) the costs reasonably necessary for full-time attendance 
at the school.

Medical School Funds 

University Grants: Preference is given to Maryland residents. 

Dean's Scholarship: Funds provided the school are awarded primarily to nonresident stu- 
dents. 

Desegregation Grants: Black students are eligible for these funds. Desegregation grants are 
normally used to reduce the amount of loan included in the financial aid award. 

Medical Alumni Association: Interest-free loans are available to students on the basis of 
financial need. 

Federal Work-Study: The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs for students who need 
financial aid and who choose to earn part of their educational expenses. Jobs are arranged 
either on or off campus with a public or private nonprofit agency. Eligible students may be 
employed for as many as 20 hours per week. To be eligible for Federal Work-Study a student 
must apply for financial aid and demonstrate financial need. 

Private and Endowment Funds: From bequests and private donations, the School of Medi- 
cine has established private and endowment accounts to provide fellowships, scholarships 
and loans for students on the basis of their academic achievement and financial need. The 
amounts of these fellowships, scholarships and loans vary and are awarded on an annual 
basis in accordance with school policy. 

The availability of support from each of the funds listed below is dependent upon 
the income generated. Moreover, since many of the funds are governed by specific provi- 
sions set forth by the donors, awards must be made accordingly.

ACCREDITATION 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore is accredited by the Middle States Association of 
Colleges and Schools. The School of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison Committee on 
Medical Education, the accrediting body for the Association of American Medical Colleges 
and the American Medical Association. 

GENERAL RULES 

The University of Maryland School of Medicine authorities reserve the right to make 
changes in requirements for admission, curriculum, standards for advancement and gradu- 
ation, fees and rules and regulations. 

Matriculants are required to accept the provisions of the Judicial Board and agree 
to assume its obligations prior to registration. 

Students who report for classes later than one week after the scheduled time will 
be permitted to begin work only by permission of the dean. Attendance at all scheduled 
classes is expected. 

Notice of change of address should be submitted promptly to the dean's office and 
to the office of the registrar. 

All new students, whether they are admitted to the first-year class or with 
advanced standing, are expected to attend an orientation for new students. 

GRADES AND PROMOTION 

The final grades for courses in all four years will be recorded as follows unless otherwise spec- 
ified by course director: 

A Excellent 

B Very Good 

C Satisfactory 

D Unsatisfactory 

F Fail 

Inc Incomplete — This designation is used only when mitigating circumstances exist; 
(e.g., illness, unavoidable absence) have prevented the student from 
completing the course on time. It is to be viewed as a nonprejudicial 
entry on the student's record; the grade "Inc" remains on the official 
student transcript. 

An award of "Honors" is given to a student who receives a final grade of "A" and 
performs an additional scholarly effort that is clearly outstanding. 

Other grading policies, such as Pass/Fail, may be designated by specific courses and 
are announced to the class at the beginning of the course. 

In addition to the final objective grade and the "Honors" category, the student's 
overall performance is evaluated subjectively. The new curriculum, with added small group 

24 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



activities and problem-based learning groups, allows for such assessment in the basic sci- 
ence years. Clinical years' activities are in small groups with close mentoring. This grading 
will be a significant part of the final assessment. Appropriate evaluation forms are desig- 
nated for this purpose. 

Established rules for advancement and dismissal during all four years have been 
approved by the faculty and student body representatives of the School of Medicine Coun- 
cil. All regulations related to grading, advancement and dismissal are included in the Aca- 
demic Handbook given to all entering students at orientation. 

The faculty reserves the right to determine whether a student may withdraw, 
repeat, advance or graduate on academic or moral and personal grounds, including traits of 
character. 

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore is actively committed to providing equal educa- 
tional and employment opportunity in all of its programs. It is the goal of the university to 
assure that women and minorities are equitably represented among the faculty, staff and 
administration of the university, so that its work force reflects the diversity of Maryland's 
population. 

All employment policies and activities of the University of Maryland at Baltimore 
shall be consistent with federal and state laws, regulations and executive orders on nondis- 
crimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, ancestry or national origin, sex, sexual 
orientation, handicap, marital status and veteran status. Sexual harassment, as a form of sex 
discrimination, is prohibited among the work force of the university. 




UNETHICAL CONDUCT 

In order to matriculate and/or graduate, students must be oi good moral character, consis- 
tent with the licensure requirements of the state of Maryland tor physicians, and musi 
demonstrate character traits consistent with comix-tent performance as a physician. The 
school reserves the right to dismiss or tail to graduate any student whose actions or o\ erall 
academic performance, including clinical performance, ^\o not demonstrate good moral 
character and ability to function effectively as a physician. Such action m.i\ he taken 
notwithstanding a student's compliance with standards for advancement and graduation set 
out in the School ot Medicine grading polk \ . 



\i \ [MM U INFORMA1 ION 



GRADUATION RATES 

Ninety-five percent of the students enrolled in the School of Medicine complete their course 
of study within the four-year period; 2-to-3 percent complete their course of study within the 
maximum five-year period. These figures are representative of those students actively pursu- 
ing their MD degree. They do not include those students in the MD/PhD track (usually six 
years) or those students who are granted a year off to engage in research, etc. 

SALARY AND EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION 

A high percentage of graduates enter the practice of medicine after completion of residency 
training. There appears to be a moderate excess of physicians in some disciplines of medi- 
cine and in some geographic areas. However, the overall need for persons holding the MD

Programs of Study 



CURRICULUM 

Broadly stated, the educational objectives of the School of Medicine are: 

• To educate students intensively and broadly in medicine and in the science of medicine. 
To equip students to engage in a lifetime of learning in order that they may successfully 
adapt to the changing environment and achieve a high level of professional competence 
and social awareness. 

• To provide opportunities for students at every level of training to pursue areas of special 
interest for intellectual stimulation and/or career advancement. 

• To encourage the development of highly competent primary care physicians, specialists 
and scholars in basic and clinical research and academic administration. 

In order to meet changing needs of graduate medical education and the practice 
of medicine, the curriculum may vary from year to year. A standing Curriculum Coordi- 
nating Committee, composed of department chairpersons, special course chairpersons, fac- 
ulty members-at-large, and representatives of the student body, has the responsibility of 
regularly monitoring and reviewing the curriculum and recommending changes whenever 
they are deemed appropriate. 

First and Second Years. The new freshman curriculum beginning in August 1994 
will be divided into "blocks" and will be scheduled over a 37-week period including vaca- 
tions and holidays. The blocks will replace discipline-specific courses. Each block will be 
planned and taught in an interdisciplinary manner utilizing both basic and clinical scien- 
tists. The following are the blocks in order of their occurrence in the freshman year; each 
has a specific time allotment which will be noted. These are Informatics (1 week); Princi- 
ples of Human Behavior (1 week); Structure and Development (9.5 weeks); Cell and Mo- 
lecular Biology (9.5 weeks); Neurosciences (6 weeks); Functional Systems (10 weeks). 
There will be a longitudinal course entitled "Introduction to Clinical Practice" that will run 
one afternoon per week throughout the freshman year. 

The daily activities o{ the freshman curriculum also have undergone change. 
There will be no more than two hours of lecture daily. Twice weekly this will be followed 
By -in. ill group discussions and twice weekly laboratory exercises will follow the lectures. 
"Laboratory" exercises can take place in the multidisciplmary laboratories, the Anatomy 
lab, the Computer Learning Center or other sites offering opportunities to demonstrate 
basic science materials. One day per week after the lectures, one-third ot the student body 
prill go to a clinical site or alternate learning area tor the Introduction to C finical Practice 
course. This course will he ottered three times per week to accommodate the entire J.i-. 
Problem-based learning sessions, utilizing the small group concept, will he held twice 
weekK tor a total of three hours in several ot the designated blocks. The remainder ot the 

week is designated tor independent stud\ where students may utilize the lihrar\ , computers, 

learning center or seek guidance from a faculty mentor. 



PROGRAMS OF STUm • 



The integrated curriculum will continue in the second year when sophomore stu- 
dents take two blocks which include; 1) Immunology, Host Defenses, Infectious Disease, 
Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (8 weeks); and 2) Pathophysiology and Therapeu- 
tics (25 weeks). The more lengthy block is Pathophysiology and Therapeutics and contains: 
neuroscience and psychiatry, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, reproductive, pulmonary, 
renal, endocrine, neoplasia, locomotive and hemopoietic sections. The sophomore year is 
characterized again by two hours of lecture, small group, independent and problem-based 
learning sessions and clinical practice. 

Third and Fourth Years . The clinical years curriculum was recently revised. The two 
clinical years are viewed as a single unit with the student assuming progressive responsibil- 
ity for patient care. The junior clinical experience consists of the following clerkships: Med- 
icine (12 weeks), Surgery (12 weeks), Family Medicine (4 weeks), Obstetrics-Gynecology 
(6 weeks), Pediatrics (6 weeks), Psychiatry (6 weeks) and Radiology/Ophthalmology or 
Neurology/Rehabilitation Medicine (4 weeks) — the two four-week rotations alternate 
between junior and senior years, depending on a student's predetermined schedule. As 
noted, students take all of these rotations according to individual schedules. The sum of 
these experiences provides a 46-week introduction to clinical science. 

The 36-week block that follows includes a 16-week elective period during which 
the student may take eight weeks of electives off-campus. An additional eight weeks must 
be spent in a student internship in one of four clinical fields: medicine, surgery, pediatrics 
or family practice. Here the student has an opportunity for primary patient care responsi- 
bility over a prolonged period of time. These rotations are offered at the University of Mary- 
land Medical System and in approved affiliated hospitals. The third segment is a 
consecutive eight-week experience in an ambulatory setting. These outpatient settings 
include internal medicine, pediatrics and family practice, with additional experience in 
clinical preventive medicine. Attendance in all course work in clinical areas is mandatory. 
The current clinical curriculum frequently involves weekend attendance. The student may 
audit available electives in any additional free time. 

The 82-week combined clinical years program provides a strong grounding in clin- 
ical science with a progressive opportunity for primary patient care responsibility. The cur- 
riculum is designed to prepare the medical student for the increasing responsibility 
demanded by the specialty residency programs adopted throughout the country.

COMBINED MD/PHD PROGRAMS 

Research in human disease requires investigators with interests and training in both basic 
science and clinical medicine. The primary objective of the MD/PhD Program is to train 
medical scientists. These individuals will differ from most basic scientists by having the clin- 
ical background necessary for the management and investigation of human disease. Equally, 
the MD/PhD medical scientist will differ from most physicians by having extensive labora- 
tory experience and the scientific background that can facilitate the application of basic 
scientific approaches to clinical problems. To achieve this goal, a flexible program of com 
pined medical and scientific training is provided to highly motivated students oi superior 
research and academic potential. This program fully utilizes the broad range of basic and 
clinical science opportunities that are available at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. 
The MD/PhD Program is offered through the departments of anatomy, biochem- 
istry, biophysics, epidemiology and preventive medicine, microbiology and immunology, 
pathology, pharmacology and experimental therapeutics, physiology, and the division of 
human genetics. Doctoral training is also available through the Interdepartmental Molec- 
ular and ( Jell Biology and the Membrane Biology Programs at I IMAB. In addition, researc h 



PROGRAMS 01 STl ON 



training opportunities are provided at the University of Maryland Baltimore County by the 
departments of biology, chemistry /biochemistry and mechanical engineering. 

The degree requirements for the combined MD/PhD are equivalent to those of the 
separate degree requirements for the Doctor of Medicine in the School of Medicine and the 
Doctor of Philosophy in the University of Maryland Graduate School, Baltimore. The 
MD/PhD degree can be completed within six to eight years. 

Although the schedule of training can be flexible, entering students typically com- 
plete the two preclinical years as regular medical students and receive graduate credit for 
many courses taken during this period. The students use minimesters and summers to gain 
research experience in the basic science departments of their choice. Students are expected 
to "rotate" through the various laboratories in the selected graduate department in order to 
facilitate the final choice of a thesis advisor. 

After the preclinical years, MD/PhD students enroll as full-time graduate students 
for two-to-four years, taking required graduate courses, seminars and focusing on disserta- 
tion research. Subsequently, they begin the clinical clerkships. Elective periods during the 
clinical years may be used to complete their PhD research. This sequence is general; a stu- 
dent may complete the program in a different sequence, depending on the schedule devel- 
oped in consultation with the student's advisor. 

Applicants to the MD/PhD Program are required to meet the admissions require- 
ments of the School of Medicine and the University of Maryland Graduate School, Balti- 
more. Qualified candidates are interviewed and selected by the MD/PhD Program Advisory 
Committee. Applications will be considered from qualified juniors or seniors at any accred- 
ited university, as well as from medical students currently enrolled at the University of 
Maryland at Baltimore. In addition, applications will be considered from students currently 
enrolled in graduate programs (i.e., MS, PhD) at the University of Maryland School of Med- 
icine or other accredited universities. An application form is included in the medical school 
admissions packet. 

Some applicants from each entering class may be awarded a waiver of tuition (at 
the financial level of Maryland resident tuition). The waiver will be awarded based upon 
academic excellence. A stipend may also be provided by the research sponsor during the 
PhD portion of the program.

OFFICE OF STUDENT RESEARCH AND MINORITY AFFAIRS 

In an effort to enhance student involvement in biomedical investigation, the school 

encourages medical students to participate in supervised research projects offered through 
the office of student research and minority affairs. The medical student program is supported 
jointly by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health and the office ot the dean. 
The faculty and administration are committed to the training of physician-scientists. 



)2 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



By encouraging medical student research, the Short Term Research Training Pro- 
gram (STRTP) strives to enhance the connection between the treatment of patients and 
the scientific investigations which enable patient care to advance. The physician-scientist 
who bridges both basic and clinical sciences and clinical practice is, therefore, in an ideal 
position to translate research into clinical application, and patient problems into labora- 
tory investigation. 

Currently, research is being conducted in several major areas of interest at the 
school of medicine. These include, but are not limited to, behavior, cancer, cardiovascular 
disease, endocrinology, environmental health, epidemiology, infections, immunology, 
neuroscience, respiration, toxicology and virology. 

Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and currently provide $300 per 
week for 10-to-12 weeks of full-time participation. These experiences are available to 
incoming students during the summer before their freshman year, and to medical students 
generally during the summers after their freshman year. On occasion, awards are made to 
students during the summer after their sophomore year or to seniors during the academic 
year. Fellowship applications are due in the office of student research and minority affairs 
on the second Friday in February. 

STRTP funds are not generally available to students with doctoral degrees, nor to 
those who are involved in doctoral dissertation research or with alternative sources of 
research funding. However, the program may supplement some alternate sources up to the 
level of STRTP trainees. Students selected to participate in the program are registered in 
and attend a summer colloquium consisting of research seminars and lectures on the ethi- 
cal and responsible conduct of research. These students also present their research to fellow 
students and faculty during the summer at the Student Research Forum and on Medical Stu- 
dent Research Day in the fall. 

The office of student research and minority affairs also provides funded opportu- 
nities for students to conduct research in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, through the Uni- 
versity of Maryland-Erasmus University Schools of Medicine Exchange Program. In 
addition, a year-out program is funded by a grant from the American Heart Association for 
those students who wish to immerse themselves in a research experience tor a full year, nor- 
mally between the sophomore and junior years. 

Summer research fellowships are also available to undergraduate minority stu- 
dents, the purpose being to encourage underrepresented minority students to consider the 
possibility of a career in one of the health professions and/or biomedical research. The pro- 
gram provides students with a realistic understanding of the biomedical research environ- 
ment through hands-on experience, contact with appropriate role models, m^\ application 
procedures tor professional and graduate schools. Thirty positions are available tor minor- 
ity undergraduate students to conduct research tor 10-12 weeks during the summer months 
at the University of Maryland at Baltimore campus and at selected sues off~campus. 
Trainees will work under the direct supervision oi experienced scientists .\nA will receive 
$250 per week tor the 10-12 weeks period. Summer research applications are due in the 
office of student research and minority affairs by the last Ja\ oi February. 

Applicants for the STRTP minority undergraduate program must he enrolled in 
an undergraduate school and in good academic standing at the time oi application. 
Although minority students from any state may apply, preference will he given to M,u\ land 

residents. Potential trainees must not have graduated at the tune the traineeship Ivjms,

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 

The University of Maryland Graduate School, Baltimore (UMGSB) was created in 1985 
by a state legislative act that merged the graduate education and research facilities of 
UMAB with the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Since then, enroll- 
ment has more than doubled and now UMGSB enrolls over 2,800 graduate students, 70 
percent of whom are Maryland residents. The linkage broadens the scope of graduate edu- 
cation and research in the region with programmatic emphasis in selected areas of biomed- 
ical and physical sciences; engineering; mathematics; information and computer sciences 
and the social sciences with particular emphasis in public policy studies. A university 
shuttlebus regularly transports students between the two campuses. 

UMGSB capitalizes on its proximity to Annapolis and Washington for the area's 
wealth of commercial, cultural, industrial and technological resources and actively seeks 
collaborative efforts and partnerships with government health, science and social service 
agencies as well as with biotechnology manufacturers and other businesses and industries. 

The Graduate School offers the MA, MS, MPS, MFA and PhD degrees, and an 
advanced certificate in policy sciences. There are also several unique ventures of joint, grad- 
uate and professional degree programs such as the MD/PhD, MPS/JD and MS/DDS. A par-

PROGRAM OF CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION 

The School of Medicine, University of Maryland at Baltimore, is concerned with three 
phases in the education of physicians: undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate or con- 
tinuing medical education. To fulfill its role in the last of these, the School of Medicine 
maintains a program of continuing medical education (CME) that offers substantive and 
accessible training to the state's physicians. The CME Program is administered by the assis- 
tant dean for continuing medical education and a tull-time staff, with the assistance of a fac- 
ulty advisory committee. 

The programs offered are approved by the American Medical Association for 
credit in Category 1 (toward its Physician's Recognition Award) and by the Accreditation 
Council tor Continuing Medical Education. To the greatest extent possible, programs are 
structured around the educational needs of practicing physicians. Both the type and con- 
tent of the instructional programs, as well as their instructional design, are varied in order 
to satisfy the learning needs ot as many physicians as possible. Courses and other educa-

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND MEDICAL SYSTEM 

The University of Maryland Medical System is a private, nonprofit institution comprised 
of the University Hospital, the University of Maryland Cancer Center, the R Adams Cow- 
ley Shock Trauma Center and the Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Established 
in July 1984, the hospital was previously an agency of the state of Maryland. The medical 
system is the primary clinical setting for the School of Medicine. It is dedicated to provid- 
ing exemplary health care for the people of Maryland, to preparing students and physicians- 
in-training for the practice of medicine and the allied health professions, and to carrying 
out research to improve the quality of health care. 

Since its founding in 1823, the hospital has become a major tertiary care referral 
center that offers the full range of specialized medical and surgical services. In recent years, 
as the number of health care facilities in urban centers has decreased, the medical system 
has assumed increasing responsibility for its surrounding community. As a result, more than 
100,000 city residents look to the University of Maryland Medical System as their primary 
source of health care. 

The 747-bed hospital is one of the nation's busiest. In one year, it records approx- 
imately 23,000 inpatient admissions, 150,000 outpatient visits, nearly ^0,000 emergency 
room visits and 2,000 births. Every day, nearly 5,000 people pass through the hospital's 
doors. The senior medical staff — more than 600 physicians — is comprised of the clinical 
faculty of the School of Medicine who supervise training of the more than 400 graduate 
physician house staff as well as the medical students. 

Because of its combined professional and academic environment, many outstand- 
ing treatment programs and research facilities have been developed at the medical center. 
The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and the University of Maryland Cancer 
Center are two prime examples. 

The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, linked with the statewide network 
of emergency communications, transportation and medical care facilities, is second to none. 
It provides high-speed emergency service to nearly 3,000 critically injured persons each 
year — the most severe multiple trauma cases in the state — with an impressive 92 percent 
survival rate. A heliport on the roof of the $44 million R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma 
Center facilitates rapid transport of the most severely injured and acutely ill patients. 

In the Cancer Center, collaboration between research scientists and research clin- 
icians has resulted in notable efforts in treating breast, lung and blood-related cancers. It 
was at the Cancer Center that researchers pioneered the freezing of a leukemia patient's 
own platelets for later use during relapses. The center's physicians work closely with other 
oncology programs within the hospital, tailoring the balance among surgery, radiation and 
anticancer drugs for each patient's optimal treatment plan. A bone marrow transplant ser- 
vice is also available. 

The hospital's intensive care units serve seven medical specialties. Its neonatal 
intensive care nursery serves critically ill newborns airlifted from points throughout Maryland. 

An organ transplant service offers the latest surgical techniques for patients suf- 
fering from kidney, heart and pancreatic diseases, and is the only program in Maryland offer- 
ing pancreas/kidney transplants and lung transplants. The hospital recently installed new 

38 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 






cardiovascular laboratories that support the state's comprehensive cardiology program for 
children and adults. The Stroke Data Bank, part of the medical system's Stroke Center, is 
one of only four in the United States. The institution's neurosurgery division has attracted 
national attention for its innovative techniques used in the treatment of brain tumors. A 
Gammaknife Center allows patients with inoperable brain tumors a new chance for sur- 
vival. The high-risk pregnancy, multiple sclerosis and magnetic resonance imaging centers 
offer the most advanced technology possible. 

Coexistent with these technologies is the system's commitment to providing 
excellent primary care as well as specialized medical care. This is demonstrated by the pres- 
ence, since 1984, of University Health Center, an ambulatory care facility that incorporates 
family practice, general adult medicine and several specialty services. It is located one block 
from the hospital. Ambulatory care also is provided in the hospital by separate emergency 
units for children and adults. 

The University of Maryland Medical System has grown both professionally and 
physically over the years. Today, through partnerships with the University of Maryland at 
Baltimore's professional schools, UMMS is the training site for pharmacists, social workers, 
dentists, nurses and other health professionals and technicians. This interprofessional envi- 
ronment is a unique and valued characteristic of the University of Maryland Medical System. 

AFFILIATIONS 

Recognizing the importance of providing excellent clinical experiences with stimulating 
faculty and mentors, the School of Medicine has developed a comprehensive network of 
affiliations designed to encompass the continuum of medical care including ambulatory, 
acute hospital, home care, rehabilitation and chronic care. In all programs medical students 
are trained by and fully supervised by School of Medicine, University of Maryland at Balti- 
more faculty. 

Over the past five years a significant effort to coordinate, expand and improve the 
ambulatory care experience has resulted in an extensive ambulatory care network of oppor- 
tunities. Clinical experiences arc offered in multidisciplinary teaching clinics, faculty prac- 
tices, community clinics, private practices and hospital-based ambulatory care programs. 
Model geriatric clinical education programs, designed at three facilities with large cohorts 
of elderly patients, serve as stimulating educational experiences where computer-assisted 
learning augments the faculty preceptor patient experience. 

Academic tertiary care experience, demonstrating state of the art technology auA 
ongoing exciting clinical research, is tittered at the three major affiliates: the University oi 
Maryland Medical System, the Baltimore VA Medical Center and Mercy 1 lospital. Addi- 
tionally, community hospitals with major commitments to the importance oi a teaching 
environment serve as outstanding opportunities tor primary and secondary health experi- 
ences. These community hospitals attract highly competitive residents who wish to train in 
a community hospital atmosphere. 

A successful network iA community, state and federal psychiatric facilities has 
resulted in .1 widely acclaimed statewide program tor psychiatry training. Special clinical 
research experience in psychiatry is additionally offered at the Institute ot Psychiatry and 
1 luinan Behavior and at the Perry Point VA Medical t enter. 

Experience in rehabilitation, home care and chronic medical care is ottered 
through several facilities, each offering special aspects oi expertise for those who wish to 
pursue psychiatry, neuro-rehabilitat ion and geriatric s.

BALTIMORE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL CENTER 

The new Baltimore VA Medical Center, which opened January 24, 1993, is a 281 -bed acute 
medical and surgical care facility adjacent to the University of Maryland Medical Center. 
Designed to additionally support a large outpatient program with extensive primary care as 
well as subspecialty experiences and ambulatory surgery, the new Baltimore Veteran Affairs 
Medical Center has been designed as a flagship facility. The medical center houses the first 
Radiology Service in the nation to offer a completely filmless program, made possible by 
new advances in computer archiving and digital processing of images. Diagnostic quality 
radiographs are available on over 80 monitors throughout the medical center, providing 
improved patient care and expanded opportunities for student and house staff education. 

A fully computerized patient information system, including bedside terminals, 
allows for ease of patient care and reduced nonproductive time for students. The system 
allows instantaneous clinical queries for clinical research and continuous improvement in 
quality of patient care. Major increases in support staff assigned to house staff teams has 
resulted in decreased "scut" work activities for students and residents, as support staff is more 
frequently available for routine phlebotomy, intravenous line adjustments, escort services 
and clerical support services. A major reconfiguration of nursing and support staff combined 
with computer designed programs has increased the efficiency of the medical care process 
so that students, house staff and faculty can better spend their time on direct rather than 
indirect patient care, and on stimulating educational and clinical research areas rather than 
on cumbersome support delivery problems. 

In the disciplines of medicine, surgery, psychiatry, neurology, anesthesiology, 
pathology, radiology, rehabilitation medicine, geriatrics and ambulatory care, there is close 
integration of the faculty, resident and undergraduate levels of the School of Medicine. Spe- 
cial programs in women's health care, endoscopic surgery, low-vision assistance, stroke 
therapy and a tertiary oncology center are planned for the new facility. More than forty 
investigators have funded research programs in areas including infectious disease, geriatrics 
exercise physiology, cardiology, immunology, neurology, oncology and schizophrenia. 

AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTER PROGRAM (AHEC) 

One of the University of Maryland at Baltimore's commitments to improving health care and 

delivery programs in primary care is the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) program. 

The AHEC program has been developed to provide a comprehensive health care 

education program for undergraduate and graduate medical students, as well as for students 

40 • SCHOOL OF ME MCINh 



from the other UMAB professional schools. AHECs are multiple health education and 
training centers that attract students, interns and residents to the several geographic areas, 
thereby attracting increased numbers of practicing physicians, encouraging development of 
health care facilities, providing for the training of additional numbers of allied health care 
professionals and increasing capabilities for the existing program of graduate and continu- 
ing medical education and health training. 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore AHEC is located in Cumberland, a rural 
community in Western Maryland. This center affords students the opportunity to under- 
stand and experience the valuable and rewarding benefits of delivering primary health care 
in a rural environment. 

It is a matter of school policy that students are required to spend eight weeks oi 
their senior year in clinical education at an ambulatory site. Some students elect to spend 
this mandatory rotation at the Cumberland AHEC. In addition, senior medical students 
may choose a rotation at the Cumberland AHEC as an elective in primary care. These expe- 
riences are designed to encourage students to consider practice in similar settings and to 
gain a firm appreciation of the special health needs of rural populations. 

OFFICE OF MEDICAL EDUCATION 

The office of medical education serves all departments of the medical school as a consulta- 
tive unit to the following areas:

The office of medical education sponsors academic support services and provides 
access to several resource facilities. These services are administered by the director of aca- 
demic development. 

Prematriculation Summer Program: This program provides an academic orientation to 
the medical curriculum to facilitate a smooth transition from undergraduate education to 
medical school. This six-week program includes learning skills workshops, five weeks of 
classes simulating the first semester schedule and a final exam week. Classes are taught by 
seven medical students who participate in an intensive one-week teacher training program 
and receive elective credit. Faculty mentors advise tutor/teachers regarding course content 
and resources. Enrollment is voluntary; full participation of enrolled students is mandatory. 
Up to 20 entering freshman may participate. 

Prematriculation Workshop: The purpose is to provide an academic orientation to the 
medical curriculum for all entering freshman students. This program is a half-day learning 
skills workshop presented prior to orientation and registration. Attendance is voluntary. 

Academic Monitoring: The purpose is to identify and contact first- and second-year med- 
ical students who show (a) poor academic performance — to improve their current course 
performance through appropriate intervention; and (b) successful performance — to iden- 
tify potential tutors. Contact with students is initiated as soon as possible following each 
examination. 

Academic Counseling: The purpose is to identify problems contributing to poor academic 
performance, and to recommend appropriate resources for corrective or supportive action 
to improve academic performance. Direct support regarding learning skills, time-manage- 
ment, exam-taking and referral to other appropriate university services and offices are part 
of the program. All enrolled medical students are eligible to participate. 

Peer Tutoring: The purpose of this service is to provide tutorial assistance for first- and sec- 
ond-year medical students to improve academic performance in basic science courses, over- 
all retention rate and, ultimately, performance on licensure examinations. Medical student 
tutors provide individual and group tutorials at no cost to students. Tutors are approved by 
faculty and participate in a tutor-training program. 

Board Preparation: The purpose is to provide structured review activities to improve per- 
formance on the USMLE Step 1 Exam. Workshops on strategies for preparing for the 



42 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



USMLE and a halt-day practice exam to set priorities tor review are offered. Participants are 
enrolled medical students eligible to sit for the Step 1 Exam. 

Irving J. Taylor Learning Resources Center and Clinical Media Library: The Irving J. 
Taylor basic sciences media library provides students with access to many self-instructional 
materials including videotapes, slide-tapes, computer-assisted instruction, lecture tapes and 
reference books. A clinical media library, located in the new Veterans Affairs Hospital 
library facility, houses materials similar to those of the Irving J. Taylor Learning Resources 
Center, but with a clinical orientation. 

Student Computer Facilities: The office of medical education is responsible for the oper- 
ation of two student microcomputer facilities: the Computer Learning Center, and the 
Apple Macintosh laboratory. Both of these facilities are part of the Irving J. Taylor Learn- 
ing Resources Center and are located adjacent to each other on the second floor of the 
MSTF building. The Computer Learning Center (CLC), located in the Medical School 
Teaching Facility, is a 20-station MS-DOS microcomputer lab. A new 20-station Apple 
Macintosh Computer Laboratory is located adjacent to the CLC. Both of these facilities are 
available for classroom and individual student use. A wide range of medically related soft- 
ware and review questions are available, in addition to word processing and other general 
purpose software. 

The office of medical education also provides illustrative and photographic services. 

Illustration: Services include comprehensive renderings of surgical and clinical tech- 
niques, anatomical renderings, statistical charts and other graphic representation. Addi- 
tional service includes comprehensive design and finishing of flyers, brochures, programs 
and posters; and layout and paste-up for offset printing and photographic copying. In addi- 
tion, they design displays and exhibits. Most of the above is accomplished through com- 
puter technology. 

Photography: Services include photographic copying of flat material such as written mat- 
ter, x-rays, laboratory tracings and data; photography of specimens, equipment set-ups, sur- 
gical, clinical and laboratory activities; and portraiture for .school-related purposes. The 
photography laboratory also handles slide duplication and motion picture photography, And 
acts as a collection station tor commercial processing of color photography. Computer- 
developed color slides are a major area of service. 

HEALTH SCIENCES LIBRARY 

The Health Sciences Library is distinguished as the first Library established by a medical 
school in the United States, and is a recognized leader in state-of-the art information tech- 
nology. The Health Sciences Library is the regional medical Library tor 10 southeastern 
states, the 1 Hstrict of C Columbia, Puerto Rico And the Virgin islands, as pan of the biomed- 
ical information network of the National Library of Medicine. 

Serving all schools on campus and l "N1MS, the library contains more than $00,000 
volumes, including 2,900 current journal titles, and is ranked in size among the top 25 
health sciences libraries m the country. 

The Library's online catalog allows you to look for materials by title, author, subjec t, 
keyword, call number, scries, meeting and organization name. In addition to giving infor- 



mation on library holdings, the system can determine whether the material has been checked 
out of the library. The online catalog can be accessed from any computer terminal on the 
UMAB campus that is linked to the campus network, or from any dial access terminal. 

The library supports several computerized search services: 

CD-ROM LAN — Available in the Health Sciences Library and through the cam- 
pus network, the LAN contains the following databases: IPA (International Pharmaceuti- 
cal Abstracts), Bioethicsline, HAPI (Health and Psychosocial Instruments), PsycLIT 
(database of psychological literature from the last 17 years), CINAHL (Cumulative Index 
to Nursing and Allied Health Literature), SWAB (social work abstracts), MicroCat (Mary- 
land Union List of book/journal materials), Computer Select (information, including full- 
text of articles, concerning computers), VICTOR (University of Maryland at Baltimore 
online catalog) and Books in Print. 

HSL Current Contents — recent citations from sections of the print Current Con- 
tents publications (Life Sciences; Clinical Medicine, Physical Sciences, Social and Behav- 
ioral Sciences and Engineering). 

MaryMed Plus — User-friendly access to the full Medline database. It is available 
for use in the library, through dial- in or over the campus network. Free passwords are avail- 
able for students.

ducted by trained information specialists who have access to over 200 databases. 

Micromedex CCIS — The Current Clinical Information Service provides full-text 
drug and clinical care information. This database is available in the Health Sciences Library 
and through dial- in or network access across the campus. 

An information specialist can help you determine which services best meet your 
needs. A consultation service is also available to help with research projects. Throughout 
the year, a series of seminars are offered to acquaint students, faculty and staff with data- 
bases, services and information access and management possibilities. 

COMPUTER RESOURCES 

Computing support for faculty, staff and students is provided for microcomputer, worksta- 
tion and mainframe computer users by Academic Computing/Health Informatics (ACHI) 
and by the Computing and Instructional Development Services (CIDS). Both are units of 
UMAB's Information Services (IS). CIDS is part of the Health Sciences Library's (HSL) 
Information and Instructional Services. 

UMAB students and faculty are able to use IS resources at each step in their 
research, learning, and teaching; this may include data collection, results analysis and doc- 
ument preparation, including desktop publishing, color printing and preparation of over- 
heads or color slides. Free electronic mail accounts enable the UMAB community to 
exchange notes, files and documents with others at the university and internationally via 
either BITNET or Internet. Access to many campus information sources and the Internet 
is provided through a campus gopher server named UMABNET. Microcomputers are 
located in several Technology Assisted Learning (TAL) centers and in user areas in both 
the IS building ( 100 N. Greene Street) and the HSL (111 South Greene Street). Centrally 



44 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



located systems in IS and HSL are accessible via the campus ethernet and by dial-up 
modems from either office or home. TAL Centers are available for use by the campus com- 
munity and for application program training. 

CIDS and ACHI supports training that ranges from microcomputer literacy and 
microcomputer boot camp to more advanced classes for word processing, graphics, desktop 
publishing, multimedia and statistical application programs. Training for access to the Inter- 
net, network resources, and e-mail packages is also available. For information, call 706-HELP. 

MEDICAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

The Medical Alumni Association has served all graduates, students, faculty and staff affili- 
ated with the School of Medicine since 1895. 

Located in Davidge Hall, 522 West Lombard Street, the Medical Alumni Associ- 
ation office is open weekdays. Among its many activities, the association coordinates the 
annual reunion weekend, publishes the quarterly Bulletin and sponsors an annual social 
event for each medical school class. 

Since the association inaugurated the Annual Giving Drive in 1978, lectures, 
scholarships and student loans funded by alumni contributions have enriched the programs 
and goals of the School of Medicine on a daily basis.

Student Life 



OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS 

The office of student affairs is designed to provide guidance, advice, help and administra- 
tive services to students enrolled in medicine. In addition, the office is responsible for mon- 
itoring student registration, progress and advancement, graduation and all aspects of 
student life related to undergraduate medical education. To this end, the office employs one 
full-time associate dean, two part-time assistant deans, a coordinator and clerical staff. 

While the entire staff is available to offer assistance to all students, some staff mem- 
bers also assume a specialty area within their overall functions. These specialty areas include 
senior elective advising, student fellowships, national residency programs advising, coun- 
seling and administration of the Vertical Advisory System. 

Office of Student Research and Minority Affairs. The office of student research 
and minority affairs serves a dual purpose of providing opportunities for students from high 
school through medical school to consider the possibility of a career in the health profes- 
sions and/or academic medicine, and of specifically increasing the number of underrepre- 
sented minority students and faculty in those professions. These goals are approached 
through a combination of enrichment and enhancement programs based in the School of 
Medicine and in Europe. 

The School of Medicine is firmly committed to significantly increasing the num- 
ber of underrepresented minority students and faculty. In place are strong outreach, recruit- 
ment and retention programs to attract and graduate minority students who are 
African-Americans, Native Americans, mainland Puerto Ricans and Mexican-Americans. 
The school is actively involved in the Association of American Medical Colleges' Project 
3,000 by 2000, which is designed to increase the number of underrepresented minority med- 
ical students in all U.S. medical schools to 3,000 by the year 2000. Recruitment and acad- 
emic enrichment activities are provided for students at the high school, undergraduate and 
medical school levels. 

The office of student research and minority affairs works cooperatively with the 
offices of admissions, academic development and financial aid and entities in the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Medical System to carry out this mission. Activities include information 
dissemination to all segments of the public, paid summer research preceptorships and vol- 
unteer opportunities at the School of Medicine and University of Maryland Medical Sys- 
tem. In addition, the office also assists in the school's minority faculty development program 
and community outreach efforts that will offer exposure to health-related and research- 
oriented career opportunities.

Elective Program. The office of student affairs compiles course offerings, sched- 
ules courses and changes of electives, and provides for both evaluation of a student's per- 
formance during electives and evaluation of the elective courses taken. 

Residency Planning. The office maintains a residency advisement program that 
includes counseling, referral to faculty, alumni and community resources and workshops on 
residency selection provided during the junior year. Recent graduates are surveyed annu- 
ally so that feedback from a number of residency programs of interest to our graduates is kept 
as current as possible. 

Vertical Advisory System. At the beginning of the freshman year students are 
assigned two faculty advisors. Generally, one of the advisors is in the basic sciences and at 
least one is a physician. Each pair of advisors is usually assigned three or four incoming stu- 
dents per year with the intention that the relationship will continue through the four years 
of medical school. The advisory system provides a helpful, ongoing interchange concern- 
ing academic, social, personal and career problems and opportunities. 

Human Dimensions in Medical Education (HDME). The HDME Program pro- 
vides opportunities for informal activities among students and faculty outside the classroom 
setting. These range from social gatherings to small group discussions of concerns and feel- 
ings related to the personal and professional aspects of medical education and practice. 

Students may elect to participate in the HDME Program at any point in their med- 
ical school career. Many enter the program by attending the prefreshman orientation 
retreat held in late August. The retreat is attended by students from all levels of training, 
faculty members and, in many cases, spouses or close friends. Thus, participants are provided 
an opportunity to get acquainted in an informal and intimate off-campus setting. Much of 
the time at the retreat is spent in intensive small group sessions. Topics of discussion are 
determined in each group, but typically include adjustment to medical school, the impact 
of a medical career on domestic life and the problem of setting priorities among various pro- 
fessional and personal demands. Recreational activities also are included in the four-day 
experience. 

Students in the HDME Program also participate in the Vertical Advisory System 
(see office of student affairs), but normally are assigned faculty advisors within the HDME 
program. 

HDME was conceived at The Center for the Study of the Person in Lajolla, C Cali- 
fornia. The program is planned and operated locally by student-tacultv committees. One 
goal of the program is to provide an environment in which students and faculty advisors can 
develop a bond during the four years of medical school. Another desired outcome is the 
development of effective communication and listening skills that will enable medical stu- 
dents, house officers and faculty members to become better health care providers. 

Family and Friends' Day. Usually in mid-fall, freshman students are asked to 
notify the office of student affairs of two or three people they would like to have invited to 
Family and Friends' Day — generally, parents or partners. Following a continental breakfast, 
those attending hear presentations from the dean, the associate deans tor student affairs and 
medical education, and senior faculty member- representing some of the major medical spe 
cialties. I Ipperc lass students give their versions oi life in the preclinical aw\ clinic al years, 
and a student-spouse discusses medical school from the viewpoint oi a "significant other." 

There is time tor informal discussion with the presenters and other members ot the fac ulty, 

and the morning ends with a tour of 1 )avidge I lall. Family members often travel substantial 

distances for this event, and it provides an opportune tune to show them around campus 
and the Baltimore area during the afternoon.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The Student Council is the organization recognized by the medical school administration 
as the official representative body of the registered students at the School of Medicine. 
Council duties include disbursement of student activities funds according to the needs of 
its members and coordinating student input in institutional administrative policy decisions. 
Student Council officers serve as student representatives to national meetings of organiza- 
tions that guide national educational and medical policies. The council also conducts elec- 
tions of all class officers. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 

Alpha Omega Alpha ( AOA). Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor society, has 
a chapter at Maryland comprised of students who are elected to membership at the end of 
their junior year or beginning of their senior year. Election to AOA is based on scholastic 
achievement, service to the school, qualities of leadership, integrity and fairness to col- 
leagues. Members coordinate programs and lectures with the goal of furthering academic 
interest and curiosity. Programs of recent years have included a lunchtime lecture series on 
topics in the history of medicine, the Woodward lecture series, an EKG interpretation course 
and sponsorship of a clinical visiting professorship. AOA also sponsors Medical Student 
Research Day and Junior/Senior Night, an orientation for juniors to the matching process. 

American Medical Student Association. The University of Maryland Chapter of the 
American Medical Student Association (AMSA Maryland) offers energetic and commit- 
ted students the opportunity to become actively involved with a group of dynamic and con- 
cerned medical students on both the local and national levels. 

AMSA is the largest independent medical student group in the country with 30,000 
members and thus uniquely promotes the interests of medical students and the public health. 
Health care reform is our focus and AMSA Maryland's focus. Recently, AMSA was invited 
to participate in the Clinton Health Care Reform Task Force and testified before the House 
Ways and Means Committee on student loan reform. National AMSA projects include the 
Generalist Physicians in Training (GPIT) Program, the Washington Health Policy Fellow- 
ship Program, the Health Promotion/Disease Prevention (HPDP) Program, annual interna- 
tional health tours, occupational health site visits and internships with our legislative affairs 
director. Numerous AMSA Task Forces provide opportunities for every student, with topics 
ranging from computers to aging to medical student well-being. 

AMSA is completely student-run, so leadership opportunities abound here in the 
chapter and at the national level. Other than projects, social activities, leadership and net- 
working opportunities, AMSA benefits include a four-year subscription to the NEW 
PHYSICIAN, a monthly medical student magazine, discounts on medical texts and travel, 
opportunities to enroll in AMSA's health and Life insurance plans, AMSA student loans 
(Stafford and HEAL) and access to excellent national resources (booklets, videos, people, 
etc.). 

American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) Student Branch. The AMWA Stu- 
dent Branch at the University of Maryland is a dynamic group responsive to the needs of 
the female medical student. While its first commitment remains to provide support and pro- 
mote friendship among students, faculty and physicians, AMWA also provides a network 

48 • SCHOOl OF MEDICINE 



where students can meet and discuss issues such as lifestyles in medicine, career choices, 
health and political issues important to women and the student body atdarge. Local activ- 
ities include potluck dinners where special guest speakers address issues, monthly noon-time 
business meetings and get-acquainted gatherings with students and faculty. 

Asian Professional Students Association. The Asian Professional Students Association 
(APSA) was formed by a group of medical students in 1984, and since then the association 
has grown to include members of other schools at UMAB. The APSA is open to all stu- 
dents, teaching staff and employees, regardless of race, cultural background, sex or country 
of origin. The goals of the association are to encourage dialogue among fellow students of 
different cultural backgrounds and to provide a platform for those who appreciate Asian cul- 
ture. APSA also sponsors education and social activities for its members and friends. 

The Better Half. "The Better Half is a support group open to all interested medical stu- 
dents and their significant others (i.e., husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends). The Better 
Half s goal is both social and supportive. Maintaining a relationship while in medical school 
can be difficult and knowing other people in the same situation can be helpful to both stu- 
dents and their partners. Gatherings such as potluck dinners, wine tasting, pizza parties, 
wine and cheese parties and couples ice skating have been popular activities. 

Big Sib Program. Each year interested upperclassmen (usually sophomores) "adopt" at least 
one entering freshman as a little sib. Newly admitted students receive correspondence from 
their fellow big brothers/sisters during the summer prior to their entry. Supported by the 
office of admissions, the program is sponsored by students and is intended to provide a plat- 
form for entering students to address their questions and concerns to fellow students who 
have experienced "life as a medical student." 

Christian Medical Society. The Christian Medical Society (CMS) is a local chapter of a 
national organization that exists to provide support and encouragement to Christian med- 
ical students and physicians and to promote Christian practices and ideals within the med- 
ical community. The group meets in the evening once a week for fellowship, prayer and 
discussion. A meal is shared every third week. Discussion topics tor the meetings include 
bible study, short-term missions, ethics, Christian family lite within the medical profession 
and evangelism. In addition, the CMS provides volunteers to help staff the Baltimore Res- 
cue Mission, which Lines medical aid to the homeless. 

Family Practice Interest Group. The Family Practice Interest Group is sponsored by the 
Maryland Academy of Family Physicians and the Department of Family Medicine. Mem- 
bership tees are paid by the Maryland Academy and members receive monthly professional 
journals free of charge. Monthly meetings are held during which students have the oppor- 
tunity to meet practicing family physicians. These meetings are usually informal talks foe us- 
ing on subjects relevant to family practice not covered in the academic curriculum. The 
group also encourages student leadership at state and nation.il levels. 

Gertrude Stein Medical Society. The Gertrude Stein Medical Society is a group of med 

ical students whose goal 1^ to foster support among gay and lesbian students and to enCOUI 

age interaction and educai ion among .ill students at the unh ersit) . I he group seeks to help 



STUDENT LIFI • 



other students and faculty understand the special needs of the gay and lesbian community 
through education and community service. The group meets bimonthly with potluck din- 
ners and other social events. 

Human Dimensions in Medical Education (HDME). The Human Dimensions in Med- 
ical Education (HDME) Program sponsors a four-day, preorientation retreat in Western 
Maryland each August for incoming freshmen that is run jointly by upperclass students and 
faculty members. The retreat enables incoming students to get to know each other and their 
advisors in an informal setting — prior to the "downtown" student orientation. Each stu- 
dent is assigned to a small group of entering freshmen and upperclass students led by one or 
both of the faculty members who will serve as the student's advisors for the duration of med- 
ical school. Emphasis is placed on meeting others as people, apart from traditional "profes- 
sor/medical student" roles. Spouses and "significant others" of students and faculty are 
welcome. They, too, are assigned to small groups. In addition to small group meetings, 
retreat participants spend time together at meals, parties and at evening events. Unsched- 
uled afternoons may be spent enjoying waterskiing, horseback riding, hiking, golfing, swim- 
ming and playing in the nearby waterfall. 

Jewish Medical Student Organization. The Jewish Medical Student Association encour- 
ages all medical students, regardless of specific affiliation (i.e., orthodox, conservative, 
reform or non-Jewish) to join and participate in the group's activities. The association 
works closely with the Jewish Community Center's Office for Graduate Studies, which pro- 
vides sponsorship for many of its activities, including Friday night dinners, talks on Jewish 
medical ethics and the building of a sukkah. The association also works with other schools 
on campus and in the Baltimore area to plan joint activities. 

Maryland State Medical Student Association. The Maryland State Medical Student Asso- 
ciation (MSMSA) is a component of the Medical and Chirurgical Society (Med-Chi) of 
the state of Maryland, which is a state component of the American Medical Association. 
MSMSA is involved in issues of health care, medical education and peer review, especially 
in the state o{ Maryland. MSMSA and AMA memberships are usually solicited together, 
and membership benefits include subscriptions to the Maryland Medical Journal and AMA 
News. MSMSA provides active student representation in Med-Chi and the AMA. 

Organization of Student Representatives. The Association of American Medical Colleges 
( AAMC) was founded over 100 years ago to improve the quality of American medical edu- 
cation. It now includes membership of 126 medical schools, 85 academic societies such as 
the American College of Physicians and 43 5 teaching hospitals. It maintains numerous data 
sources available to its members and works cooperatively with other medical organizations 
such as the American Medical Association. It provides information and testimony to the 
U.S. Congress and other federal agencies concerning medical and health-related issues. The 
Organization of Student Representatives (OSR), the AAMC's student voice, is composed 
of one student representative from each participating medical school. OSR members gather 
at an annual meeting each autumn to discuss matters of concern to the nation's medical stu- 
dents and to elect an Administrative Board. The 12-member Administrative Board meets 
quarterly with the boards of other AAMC' Councils to formulate AAMC programs and poli-

cies reflecting student views. OSR business is also conducted at regional spring meetings. 
The OSR delegate channels AAMC information to the student body on medical education 
issues such as curriculum changes, the residency match and student indebtedness. 

Student National Medical Association. The University of Maryland Chapter of the Stu- 
dent National Medical Association (SNMA) is a medical student organization that seeks 
primarily to provide academic and social support for underrepresented minority medical 
students at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. The SNMA organizes study groups, 
provides valuable course information and review materials, and facilitates organized 
discussions between upperclassmen and entering students on course requirements and 
strategies. 

The SNMA also seeks to involve itself in health and educational activities that 
benefit the surrounding community and its youth. In past years, the SNMA has been 
involved in tutoring local high school students, health screening programs in the commu- 
nity and in presentations informing high school and college students of medical school 
opportunities. In addition, the SNMA has sponsored activities for black history month that 
have included seminars and films. SNMA is active in programs that promote greater inter- 
action among underrepresented students, physicians, faculty and alumni. 

PUBLICATIONS 

Academic Handbook. The Academic Handbook is the "official word" on medical school pol- 
icy and life, written by those who run the various programs described — administrators, fac- 
ulty, students. Although the book is prepared through the office of student affairs, student 
participation and feedback contribute significantly to its effectiveness. 

AMSA Directory. With financial support from the office of student affairs and the office 
of admissions, the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) at UMAB compiles a 
student address and telephone directory each fall. The book is available to all medical 
students at no cost. 

Snowdays. Snowdays is a booklet written by the freshman class for entering freshmen. 
Designed to acquaint students with the University o( Maryland ar Baltimore and sur- 
rounding areas and metropolitan Baltimore, it includes information on housing, eateries 
and entertainment that would be helpful to people new to the city. Snowdays was conceived 
in the hope of providing freshmen with information that might prove useful prior ro their 
starting the school year. 

The Yearbook (Terra Mariae Medicus). Since 1896 Terra Mariae Medicus has provided 

wide coverage of student life. It i> a collection of moments and memories from the four years 
of medical school put together by the members of each senior class. Ea< h senior i\\ eives a 
yearbook, the cost of which is included in the student activities fee. 

Zebra Quide. Moving from the basic s^ ience ^ lassrooms to the thud- and fourth*yeai ^ lin- 
ical clerkships is a major transition. 1 he Zebra c juide is an Lntroduc tion to the ^ link ,il years 

of medical school. It was written by students tor students. I he guide contains helpful hints 



DEN1 ! ' : I • 



in areas such as getting organized, medical records, roundsmanship and formal communi- 
cations. It also contains step-by-step instructions for various procedures performed during 
clinical clerkships. The Zebra Guide is meant to enhance interaction among students, resi- 
dents and attending physicians during clinical clerkships. 

INSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE AND PLANNING 

The Committee System. Several committees are actively involved in shaping the School 
of Medicine, particularly the curriculum and other essential aspects of medical education, 
and students have a voice on these committees. The following committees/councils include 
students in their memberships. 

Curriculum Coordinating Committee (CCC) and Subcommittees. The task of the Cur- 
riculum Coordinating Committee is to continually study and evaluate the curriculum and 
methods of instruction, to make recommendations concerning changes and innovations in 
the curriculum and instructional procedures, to make a continuing study of the student 
achievement evaluation process and to recommend changes when necessary. In addition, 
the CCC Subcommittees; i.e., Year I, Year II and the Clinical Years Committees, each 
include two student representatives elected by their classmates. 

School of Medicine Council. Through the School of Medicine Council, representatives of 
the faculty, students, house staff, alumni and affiliated institutions and School of Medicine 
administration participate in the development of school policies. In addition, council mem- 
bers hear status reports from committees appointed by the dean. These include the reports 
of the Curriculum Committee, the Annual Admissions Report and those of the various 
search committees. The Council meets monthly during the academic year, offering students 
an excellent opportunity to develop an understanding of the issues affecting the operation 
and goals of the medical school. There are approximately 80 voting Council members, 1 1 
of whom are students. 

Judicial Board. Acceptable behavior within the academic community, including proper 
behavior on examinations, falls within the purview of the judicial review system and its 
functioning body, the Judicial Board. The system and operation of the board are defined in 
the "Statement of Ethical Principles, Judicial Review System and By-Laws of the Judicial 
Board," which is printed in its entirety in the Academic Handbook and distributed to incom- 
ing freshmen at orientation. 

The board consists of a chairperson appointed by the dean and representatives of 
the faculty and students in the medical school community. Any member of the community 
who directly witnesses an act that he or she deems unethical should report the incident in 
a signed letter to the chairman of the Judicial Board. The board will then investigate the 
issue and hold hearings, as defined in the aforementioned document. Findings of the board 
and its recommendations with respect to the accused are forwarded to the dean. Three stu- 
dent representatives, one each from the sophomore, junior and senior classes, are appointed 
by their class presidents. 

Ethical Advisory Committee (University Hospital). This state-mandated committee is 
composed of about 25 physicians, nurses, social workers, administrators, clergy, attorneys 



52 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



and other personnel, and welcomes the input of students and residents as nonvoting par- 
ticipants. The committee advises hospital staff and families on requests regarding difficult 
ethical decisions such as life support for terminal patients, and also helps develop hospital 
policy regarding such critical situations. The committee also serves an educational function 
to hospital staff and reviews legal and legislative decisions. 

Special Task Forces. On occasion, special committees and task forces are established to 
examine school policies or curriculum issues. Where these issues have direct relevance to 
students, the classes are frequently invited to send representatives to these functions. Major 
changes in policy or curriculum typically take two or more years to plan and implement, and 
this can be frustrating to students who will be members of each class for only one year. At 
the same time, however, each group oi entering students reaps the benefits of changes to 
which their predecessors have contributed and they now have the opportunity to leave a 
similar legacy to their successors. 

STUDENT AND EMPLOYEE HEALTH SERVICES 

Student and Employee Health provides comprehensive care to UMAB students. It is 
located in suite 160 of the University oi Maryland Professional Building, 419 West Red- 
wood Street. The office, staffed by family physicians and nurse practitioners, is open for reg- 
ular appointments from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students can also be 
seen until 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to noon (for emer- 
gencies only), at University Family Practice, 29 South Paca Street. 

Patients are seen by appointment only (call 328-6009), although true emergencies 
can be seen on a walk-in basis. A doctor can be reached after hours and on weekends by 
calling 328-6790 or 328-5 140. If you need to be seen after hours, arrangements can be made 
with the doctor on call. Do not go directly to the emergency room unless the situation is 
life-threatening. A call to the family physician can save dollars in E.R. fees. 

Gynecological services, including health maintenance (PAP smears, etc.), family 
planning and routine problems, are provided by the family physicians or nurse practition- 
ers. Birth control pills are available at a reduced cost for students receiving their GYN care 
through Student and Employee Health. 

All full-time students are required to have health insurance. An excellent insur- 
ance policy is available through UMAB that provides wide coverage tor many problems, 
including obstetrical care. The cost of most of the care provided at Student and Employee 
Health is paid tor through your student health fee. At registration, all full-time students 
must either purchase the UMAB policy or waive it by showing proof of comparable cover- 
age. The deadline tor waiving the UMAB policy is in late September. It proof of compara- 
ble insurance is not received at Student and Employee Health by that time, the UMAB 
policy must be purchased tor each month the waiver is not presented. Demonstrated proof 
ot comparable insurance is required each year the UMAB policy is not purchased. 

Hepatitis B is an occupational illness for health care providers. It has serious con 
sequences and can even be fatal. Immunization against 1 lepatitis B is required for medical, 
dental, dental hygiene, nursing, medical technology and PharmD students. I he scries oi 
three immunizations is given through Student and Employee 1 lealth. 

All new students are required to complete a Report of Medical History and an 

Immunization Record form that documents immunity to childhood illnesses. Students tail 



STUDEN1 till 



ing to present these completed forms as freshmen will not be permitted to register for the 
sophomore year. All family members can be seen at Family Medicine Specialists, the fac- 
ulty practice of the Department of Family Medicine. The family physicians provide care for 
the entire family, including obstetrical and pediatric care. 

COUNSELING CENTER 

The Counseling Center provides professional individual and group counseling to UMAB stu- 
dents. Some of the problems that students seek help with include: stress, relationships, drugs 
or alcohol, eating disorders, loss of a loved one and stressful changes in school or home life. 

Students are always seen by a professional — social worker, psychologist, psychia- 
trist or addiction counselor. Costs associated with seeing a therapist usually are covered by 
health insurance; however, no one is ever denied services based on ability to pay. Students 
are seen by appointment and students' class schedules can be accommodated in scheduling 
appointments. All Counseling Center services are completely confidential. 

HOUSING 

UMAB's two residential complexes offer different living arrangements with maintenance 
and utilities included; programs and activities; supportive and accessible staff and a conve- 
nient location. All residencies are carpeted and fully furnished. In recent years many enter- 
ing students have taken advantage of the opportunity to live on campus. Students living on 
campus are guaranteed the option of remaining in housing throughout their professional 
school years. Currently, approximately 250 students live in the campus units which are 
designed to meet the needs of a diverse student population. 

The housing staff operate the UMAB residences according to the philosophy of 
helping students to create an atmosphere conducive to all types of learning and personal 
growth. The residences diverse communities encourage resident in building relationship 
and their own identity.

Courses of Study 



YEAR 1—37 WEEKS 

Block I — Informatics — (1 week) 

Students begin their medical school training with a one-week introduction to medical 
informatics. The curriculum includes instruction in the access of campus-wide electronic 
resources and those available via the Internet. Students gain essential computer literacy 
skills in needed areas and are introduced to the use of electronic mail. Learning experiences 
are designed to bring computer relevancy to medical research and clinical applications. 
Applications software pertinent to Year I studies are introduced to the students. 

In collaboration with the Human Behavior Block (Block II), students also are 
introduced to Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and the Bio-Psycho-Social Model. Partici- 
pation in two PBL sessions requires the application of informatics skills to clinical cases. 
The formats for this block include didactic lectures, panel discussions, computer laboratory 
experiences, and PBL small groups. (Deborah Finkelsen, Steven Barkley) 

Block II — Human Behavior — (1 week) 

This interdisciplinary block is based on the critical truth that behavior — including that of 
patients, physicians and the community — plays a central role in the prevention, incidence, 
prevalence, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of illness. Psychiatry and Pediatrics faculty 
emphasize a biopsychosocial understanding of the patient-physician dyad in order to pro- 
mote students' understanding of how culture, family and individual psychology integrate 
with biology to influence health, illness (including bereavement) and treatment across the 
life span. Within this context, the block will help students (1) to acquire an understanding 
of significant behavioral science concepts relevant to the understanding of human behav- 
ior, (2) learn about changes in human behavior over the life cycle and (3) understand the 
influences on the physician-patient interaction in different clinical situations. 

The course is presented in the form of lectures, demonstrations and small group 
sessions. In addition, a case exercise presented in a problem-based format will provide stu- 
dents with the opportunity to apply the concepts acquired through didactic presentations 
and independent research. (Dr. Bruno Anthony) 

Block III — Structure and Development — (9 weeks-2 days) 

Fundamentals of Structure and Development. A comprehensive overview of the morpho- 
logical and developmental organization of the human body is provided. The basic concepts 
o( structure as related to function are described in lectures and demonstrations. Study 
includes all levels from gross morphology to the ultrastructure of cells revealed by electron 
microscopy. Laboratory facilities for gross examination are provided for dissection, topo- 
graphical study, osteology and radiology. Light microscopical laboratories are available for 
study of histological preparations of human tissue and for correlation of tissues studied at 
this level with electron micrographs. The course also includes instruction in living 
anatomy, radiology and clinical correlation. Laboratory instructors include anatomists, sur- 
geons and radiologists. The interdependence between structure and function in the differ- 
ent tissues and organs of the body is emphasized. (Dr. Charles Barrett) 



56 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Block TV — Cell and Molecular Biology — (9 weeks-2 days) 

It has become clear that many disease processes can be understood at the cellular and mo- 
lecular level. Thus, an understanding of biological molecules and their interactions under- 
lies modern medicine and the treatment of diseases. The goal of this course is to present 
fundamentals of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology and human genetics from an 
integrated multidisciplinary perspective. Further, these molecular principles are correlated 
with clinical issues throughout the course so that the importance of cell biology in the illu- 
mination of the causes o(, as well as the strategies for the treatment of, many diseases is 
clearly revealed. 

This comprehensive course presents a concise view oi many topics including the 
basic structure and function of mammalian cells, structure and function of proteins and 
enzymes, cellular energetics and metabolism, biochemical nutrition, cellular receptors and 
intracellular signalling. Fundamental principles of modern molecular biology are presented, 
including DNA structure and function, protein synthesis and the regulation of gene expres- 
sion. The principles of modern molecular biology are integrated with clinical human genet- 
ics so that fundamentals of cytogenetics and population genetics are examined. 

The goals of this course are accomplished through a series of focused lectures com- 
plemented by clinical correlation sessions presented by the clinical faculty. In addition, this 
course includes a major commitment to teaching fundamentals through multiple small 
group sessions where students learn through problem solving, clinical case studies and 
through discussion and presentation of the medical literature. In addition, computer pro- 
grams are available that provide independent, self-directed opportunities for learning the 
material covered throughout this course. (Dr. Terry Rogers) 

Block V — Neurosciences — (6 weeks) 

The Neurosciences Block provides a unified approach to the study ot the central nervous 
system; i.e., fundamental concepts of neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neurophysiology, 
clinical neurology and psychodynamics are considered in an integrated sequence. The 
course begins with structural, biochemical and developmental aspects of the brain and 
spinal cord. Studies of the major sensory and motor systems and consideration of higher 
neural functions subsequently form the core of the course. Clinical presentations highlight 
the importance of major neurobiological principles in the hospital and office setting. Meth- 
ods used include lecture, laboratory and small group discussions, along with self-teaching 
and self-evaluation units. The course faculty includes members of the departments of 
anatomy, biochemistry, physiology and neurology. (Dr. Marshall Rennels) 

Block VI — Functional Systems — (10 weeks) 

Tins block covers the tunction.il aspects of major organ systems. It provides students with 
a basic understanding of mammalian and, in particular, human physiology, and lays the 
foundation tor the study of clinical medicine. The subject matter is organized into sec t ions 
that cover cellular, cardiovascular, renal, respiratory, gastrointesi inal, endocrine and inte« 
grative physiology. Each block ties together aspects ol structure with function and includes 
discussion of relevant clinical and pathophysiological applical ions, t )onferenc e periods are 
used tor clinical correlations, sin. ill group discussions, laboratory exercise and computer- 
assisted simulations. The curriculum includes problem-solving and problem-based, self 
learning sessions. (1 V. Michael Selmanoff) 



coursi um 



ICP — Introduction to Clinical Practice 

The Introduction to Clinical Practice course will run through all four years of medical 
school. During the first two years, the course will occupy one afternoon each week and will 
introduce interactive discussions on topics such as ethics, intimate human behavior, nutri- 
tion, interviewing and physical diagnosis issues, topics relevant to the delivery of primary 
care. First-year students will learn interviewing and basic physical diagnosis during the 
scheduled afternoon block at an off-site primary care setting. Sophomore students will have 
this time assigned to the Introduction to Medicine course, a small group, hands-on experi- 
ence with more sophisticated physical and diagnostic examinations involving internal 
medicine, pediatrics, neurology and psychiatry. Junior and senior students will spend one- 
half day each week on a longitudinal continuity experience in the same primary care site 
over the two-year span, allowing both mentoring by the physician and continuity-of-care 
patient experience. 

YEAR 11—38 WEEKS 

Block VII — Immunology, Host Defenses, Infectious Disease, Epidemiology and 
Preventive Medicine — (8 weeks) 

The Immunology, Host Defenses, Infectious Diseases, and Epidemiology and Preventive 
Medicine block is the first block in the second year and is eight weeks in duration. The block 
is divided into four sections: (a) Host Defense Mechanisms; (b) Bacteria and Bacterial 
Infections; (c) Epidemiology and Pathogenesis of Viral Diseases and (d) Parasitic and 
Mycotic Infections. The primary intent of this block is to convey to students the general 
principles of Immunology and to introduce infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, 
fungi and parasites. The format for this block will include lectures, small group discussions 
(coordinated by the Microbiology and Immunology basic science faculty), clinician small 
group conferences (coordinated through the department of medicine), problem-based 
learning (PBL) sessions, and laboratory and computer-based sessions which will combine 
"hands on" experience with infectious microorganisms as well as demonstrations and self- 
instructional material. Faculty from the department of microbiology and immunology will 
also participate in the Pathophysiology and Therapeutics block (Block VIII) when appro- 
priate. (Dr. David Silverman) 

Block VIII — Pathophysiology and Therapeutics — (25 weeks) 

The course of Pathophysiology and Therapeutics provides an interdisciplinary examination 
of the basic principles of pathology and pharmacology applied to both normal and disease 
processes. This 25-week course incorporates basic concepts of biochemistry, physiology, 
microbiology and immunology, epidemiology (as applied to clinical research, health care 
organization, occupational and environmental medicine) and clinical psychiatry (includ- 
ing psychopathology and psychiatric treatment modalities). The course begins with the 
general principles of pathology and of pharmacology, and is followed by the study of disease 
processes and their treatment from both a mechanistic and morphological viewpoint. 
Emphasis is also placed on the mechanism, action and interaction of pharmacologic agents 
in normal and disease states. The course is divided into nine sections: (1) General Princi- 
ples oi Pathophysiology and Therapeutics; (2) Neoplasia and Oncopharmacology, Envi- 
ronmental Pathology and Toxicology, Occupational and Forensic Medicine; (3)

Course Offerings 

Anatomy 

Department of Anatomy 
Professor and Chair 
Michael T. Shipley, PhD 

The educational goal of the department of anatomy is to provide a basis for understanding 
the development, structure and function of the human body. To this end, the department 
of anatomy faculty provides instruction as a major participant in two integrated teaching 
blocks, Blocks III and V, and has minor teaching involvement in Blocks IV and VI. In Block 
III, Structure and Development, a format that combines classical "gross" anatomy, 
microanatomy (histology), embryology, radiology, surgery and physiology is used. In Block 
V, Neurosciences, neuroanatomy is integrated with neurophysiology, neurochemistry, neu- 
robiology and clinical neurology. In both blocks, lectures are correlated with practical lab- 
oratory assignments. In this way, the student is provided with a comprehensive treatment 
of the subject matter and has ample opportunity to learn its important clinical implications 
and research applications. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

A major research effort in the areas of developmental neurobiology and neural networks has 
been added to existing strengths in neurobiology, cellular developmental and reproductive 
biology. The department will move into a new, state-of-the-art research facility in July 
1995. A wide variety of research opportunities leading to the PhD or MD/PhD degrees is 
made possible by extensive collaborations among departmental faculty and neuroscientists 
and reproductive biologists in other departments and at other institutions. 

Departmental faculty investigate questions from the molecular to the systemic lev- 
els, from gene expression through assembly and maintenance of specialized cell-membrane 
domains, to the establishment and maintenance of multineuronal networks. Biochemical, 
neuroanatomical, electrophysiological, molecular biological and tissue culture techniques 
are used together with advanced imaging techniques and immunolocalization by light and 
electron microscopy. 



Anesthesiology 

Department of Anesthesiology 

The Martin Helrich Professor and Chair 

M. Jane Matjasko, MD 

As part of the sophomore course given by the department of pharmacology and experi- 
mental therapeutics, a discussion group elective "Clinical Practice in Anesthesiology" is 

60 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



offered to present the core curriculum of the specialty. The course is highlighted by "hands 
on" laboratory animal demonstrations in the Anesthesiology Research Laboratories. 

In addition, during the first two years the department participates in lectures, con- 
ferences and laboratory exercises of various preclinical departments such as Physiology and 
Pharmacology. Such participation is intended to illustrate the direct application of basic 
science principles to the clinical practice of anesthesiology. Emphasis is placed on the phys- 
iologic and pharmacologic basis for the management of patients before, during and after 
surgery. 

Electives of varying orientation and complexity are provided during the clinical 
years. These include clinical anesthesiology, neuroanesthesia, pain management, critical 
care medicine and research. Further information and details concerning the elective courses 
may be found in the electives catalog or by contacting the department chairman. 
Research Interests 

Research is related to cardiorespiratory function, computer models and pain ther- 
apy. Some of the studies underway include: 

• Five-year NIH funded study to investigate the effects of anesthesia, posture and surgery 
on the chest wail and respiratory mechanics. 

• A U.S. Navy funded project to examine performance of anesthesiologists in the resusci- 
tation area and operating rooms o{ the Shock Trauma Center. 

• A multidepartmental project to examine new 2 carrying solutions as blood substitutes 
in hemorrhagic shock. 

All the above respiratory studies involve measurement of physiologic data online. 
Computer interfacing and analysis play an important role. 

Other projects include examination of acinar gas mixing using radioisotope analy- 
sis of xenon washout. 

Ten faculty members and several resident anesthesiologists are actively partici- 
pating in laboratory studies. Up to three medical students can be accommodated during the 
summer with experience provided in instrumentation and anesthesia for laboratory animals 
utilizing many of the interventions and measurements of cardiorespiratory function used in 
clinical practice. The students would join ongoing research projects and assist with data col- 
lection and analysis. 



Biological Chemistry 

Department of Biological Chemistry 

Professor and Chair 
Giuseppe Inesi, MIX PhD 

Biochemistry, including molecular biology and gene expression, seeks to understand the 

phenomena of biology in terms of molecular structure and Interaction. It permeates all of 



C O U I E R 1 N G S • 



modern biology and medicine and is a fundamental prerequisite to other medical sciences, 
particularly pharmacology, microbiology, cell biology, pathology and the clinical sciences. 

The teaching goal of the department is to present a concise but comprehensive lec- 
ture-conference course including as major subjects: proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, inter- 
mediary metabolism, energy production and utilization, chemical aspects of hormones, 
protein and nucleic acid biosynthesis, with general reference to cell and molecular biology 
and genetics. 

The department of biochemistry faculty will be involved in teaching in the first- 
year blocks; Block IV — Cell and Molecular Biology, Block V — Neurosciences and Block 
VI — Functional Systems. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Teaching of cell and molecular biology for medical students is concentrated in a ten-week 
period in late fall of the freshman year. Activities include plenary lectures, small group con- 
ferences with problem-based learning, independent studies and a series of correlative med- 
icine sessions to demonstrate the application of biochemistry to the understanding of 
human disorders. 

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 

The department of biological chemistry also offers PhD programs, and a MD/PhD program. 
Classroom teaching for graduate students include courses in introductory biochemistry and 
molecular biology, proteins and enzymes, biochemistry seminar, muscle: contractility and 
excitation-contracting coupling and advanced molecular biology. In addition, several pro- 
fessors are available as advisors for fulfillment of experimental theses in funded research 
laboratories. 

Students with research interest in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, are 
encouraged to contact individual faculty members about opportunities for part-time or sum- 
mer research. Limited funds have been available to support part-time research assistants 
from the medical school. 

FACULTY RESEARCH INTERESTS

The department of dermatology faculty teaches in the first year Structure and Development 
block and in the second, Immunology, Host Defenses and Pathophysiology and Therapeu- 
tics blocks. 

DERM 541. Dermatology Elective. Dermatology may be taken as an elective during the 
fourth year. Students work together with the dermatology residents and attending in the 
diagnosis and treatment of a large number of patients with cutaneous disorders. Emphasis is 
placed on developing proficiency in dermatologic examination and description. Students 
actively participate in grand rounds, daily seminars and the weekly journal club. They also 
attend the clinical sessions of the Maryland Dermatological Society. A brief oral presenta- 
tion and short final examination are required. 

Advanced Dermatology Elective — to be arranged. Students with a major interest may con- 
centrate or divide their time among the dermatological subspecialties such as derma- 
topathology, dermatological surgery, occupational or environmental dermatology, or 
individual research. The students enrolled should have completed their required third year 
course in an exemplary manner as a prerequisite. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

The University of Maryland has a three year residency program in Dermatology which 
stresses both the clinical and research aspects of this specialty. One year of internship in a 
primary care field is required. The usual conferences in a Dermatology program such as 
pathology, mycology, immunology and allergy, basic sciences, journal club, radiation ther- 
apy, pharmacology and clinical textbook review are included in our program. 



Diagnostic Radiology 

Department of Diagnostic Radiology 
Associate Professor and Acting Chair 
Philip A. Templeton, MD 

Since German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 1895, its use 
has been greatly expanded in our society. With advances in technology, radiology now 
makes or verifies the diagnosis in three out ol torn cases of organic disease. With the addi 
tion and integration oi nuclear medicine, ultrasonography, computed tomography, and 
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diagnostic imaging is playing ^\\ even more extended 
role in diagnosis and selected (interventional) therapeutic procedures. 



C O U R S I OFFERING 



RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Clinical research is the main focus of departmental research activity. The department offers 
and is pursuing a variety of research in state-of-the-art technologies such as spiral CT, MR 
imaging, SPECT imaging, teleradiology and picture-archiving and communications system 
(PACS). Specific projects are the evaluation of MR pulse sequences to improve diagnosis, 
use of spiral CT to decrease the intravenous contrast dose, and a comparison of the quality 
of conventional and PACS images. 

The department is organized into the subspecialty sections of abdominal imaging, 
angiography/interventional radiology, chest radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, neurora- 
diology, nuclear medicine, pediatric radiology and ultrasonography. The subspecialty orga- 
nization and multiple interdepartmental conferences facilitate collaboration with diverse 
clinical specialties. Projects include cooperative studies with physicians in the University 
of Maryland Cancer Center, MR evaluation of renal-pancreas transplants and outpatient 
drainage and sclerosis of malignant pleural effusions. Other projects are underway, in coop- 
eration with MIEMMS physicians, evaluating the usefulness of CT and MRI in the diag- 
nosis of multiple visceral and skeletal trauma, particularly involving the pelvis and 
acetabuli. Multiple cooperative cardiovascular nuclear medicine studies are progressing 
with cardiology. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

The department of radiology offers the medical student an opportunity to acquire a broad 
base of knowledge touching on almost all aspects of medicine. Formal instruction begins 
during anatomy in the first year and pathology in the second year. During the third year, 
students take the required course RADI 540. The required curriculum is supplemented with 
small group case discussions with the faculty and contact through interdepartmental rounds 
and conferences involving radiology as the student rotates on the other clinical services. 

Third Year 

RADI 540. Basic Radiology. Small groups of students are assigned for a period of three 
weeks to the department of radiology. The group is subdivided to allow individual instruc- 
tion as the student rotates through a series of observation periods in selected subspecialties 
within the department. Students also receive an introduction to the department of radia- 
tion oncology. Reading assignments, slide-tape exercises, a student teaching file and lec- 
tures form the core of the learning experience. Students attend departmental conferences 
and some joint conferences with other departments. An objective final examination is 
included in the course. 

Third and Fourth Years 

Radiology Elective. Students learn more about properly using diagnostic imaging and inter- 
preting images. The curriculum is flexible, tailored to the needs o( the student's career 
choice. Students are expected to investigate some small aspect of imaging within their area 
of interest and make a short presentation to the faculty and residents. This presentation and 
overall performance, as evaluated by the curriculum supervisor, serve as the evaluation cri- 
teria for this elective. Students are given the opportunity (in all sections) to perform clini-

cal and/or lab research, correlate imaging evaluations, statistical analysis, literature reviews, 
etc. RADI 540 is a prerequisite. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

A four-year residency is offered in radiology at the University of Maryland Medical System. 
Fellowships are offered in computed body tomography/ultrasonography/MRI, interven- 
tional and vascular radiology, neuroradiology, critical care trauma, musculoskeletal radiol- 
ogy and chest radiology. 



Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine 

Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine 

Professor and Chair 

Paul D. Stolley, MD, MPH 

Modern epidemiology is a biomedical discipline at the interface of clinical practice and 
basic medical science. Preparation for the practice of medicine requires knowledge not only 
of clinical medicine and basic medical science, but also epidemiology, research methods, 
biostatistics and social science. 

The department is engaged in teaching, research and service across the spectrum 
of public health and preventive medicine. The faculty has expertise in clinical epidemiol- 
ogy, biostatistics, environmental and occupational medicine, clinical preventive medicine, 
health services research, outcomes research, aging, behavioral sciences, international 
health, health economics and medical informatics. Departmental courses, seminars, jour- 
nal club, clinical assignments and supervised research experiences are offered to enhance 
the physician's capabilities in these areas of increasing public health importance. Interdis- 
ciplinary relationships have been formed with other departments and clinics within the 
University of Maryland Medical System and throughout the region. 

The department introduces principles of epidemiology and biostatistics, clinical 
research methods, occupational and environmental medicine, organization of the health 
care system, and ambulatory and clinical preventive medicine in the second, third and 
fourth years of the medical school curriculum. 

MD/PhD students can elect to pursue their PhD degree in epidemiology. Another 
option tor medical students interested in public health is a combined MD/MS degree in pre- 
ventive medicine. 

The department sponsors an ACGME approved two-year residency program lead- 
ing to board certification in _uencr.il preventive medicine. The program prepares physicians 
for positions in federal health agencies, state health departments, hospitals, medical 
schools, public health institutes and industry, as well as for the practice of clinical preven 
tive medicine. 

Many of the graduate courses, tutorials and research experiences ,ue available to 
medical students during their elective periods. Students are welcome .it those departiuen

tal seminars listed in the Academic Calendar and journal club, which are scheduled each 
week through the academic year. 

Community service activities of the department are carried out in health planning, 
research and evaluation through active collaboration with hospital clinics, health depart- 
ments, governmental agencies and voluntary organizations concerned with public health 
problems. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Departmental research activities cover a broad range of faculty interests. Clinical and com- 
munity intervention studies are directed toward the causes and prevention of major chronic 
diseases. Environmental and genetic risk factors associated with disability are an area of 
active research. Research on hip replacement outcomes, as well as treatment of Lyme dis- 
ease, represent increased attention to the study of medical care effectiveness and outcomes. 
Behavioral change research, particularly smoking cessation and diet modification, focuses 
on establishing and maintaining a healthy life style. The department's program of interna- 
tional health operates with Egyptian collaborators and investigates the prevention and con- 
trol of infectious and tropical diseases. Women's health throughout the life cycle has 
become a recent research concentration: musculoskeletal and reproductive health are of 
particular interest. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

First and Second Years 

Biostatistical and epidemiological methods, principles of Occupational and Environmen- 
tal Medicine, and Organization of the Health Care System are integrated into the systems- 
oriented instruction in Blocks VII and VIII in the second year. The emphasis is on principles 
needed by practitioners to critically evaluate the scientific medical literature regarding 
issues such as disease etiology and diagnostic testing, as well as preventive and ameliorative 
treatments. These principles are introduced in lectures and applied in exercises in small- 
group sessions. The exercises complement systems-related material introduced by other dis- 
ciplines by providing a clinical scenario which requires the understanding and use o( 
relevant epidemiologic principles and research papers to respond to study questions. Work- 
ing collaboratively with facilitators and colleagues, students critique and present related 
research papers in their groups. (Drs. Hebel and McCarter and Faculty) 

Clinical Years 

The applications of preventive medicine to clinical practice are presented in the senior- 
year ambulatory and clinical preventive medicine combined rotation. Emphasis is placed 
on the important role of the physician in health promotion and disease prevention. Ses- 
sions focus on risk factors for the leading causes of death and disability in the United States 
and on important issues in health care policy affecting physicians and their patients. Stu- 
dents also present patient management cases and prepare preventive medicine projects. 
Students assigned to Western Maryland and Eastern Shore sites participate in class sessions 
via interactive video. (Drs. Havas, Scherlis, Sherwin, Strickland and Clinical Faculty)

Family Medicine 

Department of Family Medicine 
Associate Professor and Chair 
Herbert L. Muncie Jr., MD 

The department of family medicine educates family physicians to render high-quality med- 
ical care to individual patients and families of all ages in a continuous and comprehensive 
manner. Family physicians are responsible for patient care at the point of entry into the 
health care system; providers or coordinators of health care at the secondary and long-term 
care phases of illness; and coordinators of tertiary care. 

The department offers educational experiences in family medicine for students at 
the University Family Practice (office site of faculty), on the Family Practice Inpatient Ser- 
vice and through an interdisciplinary, longitudinal educational program that is guided by a 
staff of experienced family physicians. Moreover, students may participate in community 
health services and supervised practice experiences and in health care research. 

Within the discipline of family medicine, several areas are emphasized. The 
department has a Division of Geriatrics that dates back to 1974 and is a national leader in 
geriatrics education. It was the first specifically dedicated Division of Geriatrics on this cam- 
pus. Multiple programs, both departmental and interdisciplinary, are in place or being for- 
mulated. The Supportive Care Unit is a unique model for rehabilitation of frail, elderly 
patients following an acute hospital stay, focusing on optimization of function with a dis- 
charge goal of returning patients to home or to the least restrictive environment. The broad 
spectrum of the division's educational, research and patient care efforts includes the pre- 
elderly well, the hospitalized elderly, the frail homebound elderly and the chronically inca- 
pacitated, aged patient. The division provides regular housecalls for 150 frail homebound 
elderly, the largest program in the city. The Division of Geriatrics is a leader in the field of 
quality assurance in long-term care facilities. Expansion of facilities and activities to con- 
tinue eminence in this area is in progress. 

The department has a major focus on providing health care to underserved patients 
and communities. The program involves community outreach and disease prevention. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research efforts of the department of family medicine reflect the broad interests of the 
department's faculty. Current projects, which are clinically oriented and relate to current 
medical problems, range from epidemiologic studies to evaluations of specific therapies. The 
department has a strong interest in health promotion and nutrition, especially as they relate 
to the family and the elderly. The department concentrates on investigating ways to improve 
the health of our communities. Collaborative efforts with other departments involve inves- 
tigations into health promotion, infections in the elderly, abdominal pain, informed consent 
and osteoarthritis. During their last year of training, all Family Medicine residents are 
required to complete a research project and to present their results at the Annual Family 
Medicine Residents' Research Day. The department faculty, fellows and residents present 
their research at national meetings, and in journals, books and other publications.

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Minimester Electives. During the summer months, students may elect to spend time in the 
office of a selected family physician in order to observe the varied professional activities oi 
a physician practicing in the community. During preceptorship experiences, students may 
participate in direct patient care or primary health care research. 

Family Care Track Program. The Family Care Track (FCT) is an elective undergraduate 
experience designed to teach medical students the principles of family medicine with a focus 
on the urban, poor, multi-problem family. It provides a continuous clinical experience 
through all four undergraduate years. Students are assigned to follow three families over four 
years in the department's Family Practice Centers. The families are selected to provide 
exposure to obstetric, pediatric and geriatric care, and to family dysfunction. Supervision is 
provided to the individual student and through the use of small group integration seminars 
for case discussion. The students also are required to complete a community medicine sem- 
inar series, a social services preceptorship, a needs assessment, a community project, and a 
four-week clinical preceptorship in sites, including some located in health-professional 
shortage areas. 

Up to 20 students are selected each year from the freshman Longitudinal Elective 
in Family Medicine to participate in the Family Care Track Program. Credits for this elec- 
tive include four weeks of senior elective credit at the completion of the program. 

Senior Elective in Family Practice. In this elective, students work with a community fam- 
ily physician preceptor. They have the opportunity, under supervision, to manage problems 
typical of a busy practice, ranging from obstetrics to geriatrics. Here, there is ample oppor- 
tunity to be involved in coordinating continuous care of patients over a four-to six~week 
period. Students begin to understand the patient in relation to family, job and environment. 
Furthermore, the student observes the role of the physician in society, the social and civic 
obligations and responsibilities to the patient. Site options range from urban health man' 
power shortage sites to rural private practice. In these varied settings, students are expected 
to conduct a limited clinical investigation, using data collected in the practice, and to 
attend weekly Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon meetings in the community. 

Senior Internship in Family Practice. The department of family medicine offers an eight- 
week internship to senior students. This is an extensive inpatient experience utilizing the 
family medicine inpatient service. Variety is a major attraction as the patients' needs range 
from newborn care and obstetrics to adult general medical and geriatric care. The student 
is exposed to the family practice approach to inpatient care with an emphasis on interdis- 
ciplinary, comprehensive and continuous care and participates in night and weekend call. 
Students may choose to accomplish the rotation at University 1 lospital or I fnion Memor- 
ial 1 lospital. The rotation at Union Memorial is primarily an internal medicine experience. 

Senior Ambulatory Clerkship in Family Practice. Students may select the Family 1 lealth 
Center as an option in the required Senior Ambulatory ( bourse. This eight-week rotation 
exposes students to the clinical practice oi the department of family medicine residency pro

gram. In this setting, students are scheduled to see patients daily in the Family Health Cen- 
ter, work with a variety of preceptors from the department of family medicine and partici- 
pate in didactic sessions. This ambulatory experience is designed to expose students to the 
principles and practice of family medicine. 

GRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

The University of Maryland's approved three-year residency in family practice is one of the 
oldest in the nation. Approximately 39 residents are enrolled in a three-year program. The 
program's goal is to provide comprehensive training in the specialty, utilizing the latest 
information and educational methods. Resident training takes place both at University 
Hospital, where the expertise of faculty in all specialties can be utilized, and in several com- 
munity hospitals where the residents are exposed to a wide variety of patient problems. Flex- 
ibility is maintained through the availability of electives in order to accommodate specific 
needs of the trainee. Although the majority of graduates are actively engaged in family prac- 
tice in rural, suburban and urban areas, a significant number are pursuing academic careers. 



Medicine 

Department of Medicine 

The Theodore E. Woodward Professor and Chair 

John A. Kastor, MD 

Professor and Vice-Chair 
Philip A. Mackowiak, MD 

The department of medicine, or internal medicine as it is called in some schools, teaches 
the body of medical knowledge that enables one to diagnose and treat the illnesses of adults 
primarily with medicines rather than with operations. 

The practitioner of internal medicine is usually called an internist, but he or she 
may be referred to by the title physician, in the specialized use of the word, which can also 
be applied to any medical doctor. An internist may be a cardiologist, an endocrinologist, a 
gastroenterologist, a rheumatologist or a practitioner in one of the dozen or so specialties of 
internal medicine. But the internist always remains the physician (or the diagnostician as 
internists were called in former times) whose special competence is solving difficult diag- 
nostic problems and personally applying, or obtaining from a colleague, the best treatment 
available. 

The term internal medicine, which derives from the German Innere Median, was first 
used during the nineteenth century when many American physicians travelled to Germany 
and Austria for training in what were then the leading clinics and medical laboratories. 
According to one medical historian, "Within a decade or so after 1880, internal medicine 
was differentiated from ordinary clinical medicine, the simple natural history of disease, by 
emphasizing that it was based on experimental work in physiology and physiochemistry." 
Internists have always required special training to acquire their knowledge and skills and 
have continuously shown a particular interest in the scientific basis of clinical work. 

70 • SCHOOL OF MHMCINE 



Educating medical practitioners for the state and the nation is the principal train- 
ing responsibility of the faculty of the department of medicine, but it is also our aim to 
develop in some students a desire to make useful discoveries through basic or applied 
research. Fundamental advances in the causes and treatment of disease have often been 
made by internists; for example, the work on cholesterol metabolism which in 1985 brought 
the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology to two internists, one a gastroenterologist and 
the other a geneticist. In keeping with this traditional devotion to the value of research, the 
department of medicine provides many opportunities for students to participate in research 
and strongly encourages all who may have an interest to experience the work of the inves- 
tigator in one of our laboratories. 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

First and Second Years 

The department of medicine faculty teach in the first-year Neurosciences and Functional 
Systems blocks, and in the second-year Pathophysiology and Therapeutics, and Immunol- 
ogy, Host Defenses, Infectious Disease, Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine blocks. 

Second Year 

PDIA 520. History and Physical Examination. Eliciting an accurate story of the patient's 
complaints (the history) and detecting abnormal findings by physical examination consti- 
tute the fundamental skills of every physician. To acquire these abilities, students attend 
introductory lectures from members of the faculty; afterwards, groups of two students meet 
weekly with instructors in one of the University of Maryland's teaching hospitals. The stu- 
dents interview and examine patients with a wide variety of illnesses and then discuss the 
findings with their teacher who correlates the observations with pathophysiological abnor- 
malities being studied in basic science courses. The course also includes small group sessions 
with instructors from neurology, pediatrics and psychiatry. This will be incorporated into 
the Introduction to Clinical Practice block given Longitudinally in the sophomore year of 
the "new curriculum." 

Third Year 

MEDC 530. Clinical Clerkship. This is the fundamental course in internal medicine tor 
medical students. The clerkship is 12 weeks in Length and consists of eight weeks of inpa- 
tient internal medicine and 4 weeks of ambulatory internal medicine. For eight weeks, the 
students work with the medical teams caring tor inpatients at two ot the department's three 
primary teaching hospitals: University Hospital and the Baltimore Veterans Affairs m^\ 
Mercy Medical Centers. Students join the interns, residents, and nurses tor work rounds .it 
8:00 a.m. and participate in daily rounds with their attending physician from the faculty at 
9:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Conferences are held daily; some are case-based h'^khis 
facilitated by members of the faculty and are designed to teach problem solving ability. Pur- 
ing other sessions, students join the house staff and faculty at Medical C Jrand Rounds, Moi 
bidity and Mortality, and Ambulatory Conference. During the afternoons and evenings, 
clerks participate in the team's eare ot patients. Tune is spent obtaining histories, perform- 
ing physical examinations, obtaining and evaluating other aspects o( the patient's database, 
and developing diagnosis and treatment programs with the house -t itt and fa< ulty. 1 Hiring

based or community sites. The goal of this rotation is to introduce students to the basic con- 
cepts of ambulatory medicine. These include problem focused assessments, decisions about 
urgency, and principles of access and continuity of care. Students may spend time in acute 
walk- in clinics, general medicine and primary care clinics, as well as selected subspecialty 
clinics. 

Fourth Year 

MEDC 548. Student Internship (Subinternship in Medicine). Each fourth-year student 
takes a subinternship in medicine, pediatrics, surgery or family practice. The student intern- 
ship in internal medicine occupies four-to-eight weeks (based on student selection), all of 
which must be spent on the general medical services at University Hospital or the Balti- 
more Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Student interns work as if they were graduate physi- 
cians but under the close supervision of the resident and attending physicians. Subinterns 
are on-call in the hospital with their resident physicians one out of four nights. The amount 
of responsibility delegated to subinterns depends upon the extent of each student's knowl- 
edge, dedication and maturity. Successful completion of a subinternship in medicine pre- 
pares students particularly well for graduate internships. 

Laboratory and Clinical Research Electives. The faculty of the department of medicine 
strongly encourages all students to join them on a full-time or part-time basis to participate 
in research projects being conducted in the department. This experience may be scheduled 
at most times of the year. Students with an interest in investigation should talk with mem- 
bers of the faculty or the chairman about the many opportunities for this work available in 
the department of medicine. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

Residency Training. Training in internal medicine continues after graduation from med- 
ical school in the department's residency program. Approximately 35-40 graduates from 
leading medical schools are appointed to first year residency positions on a competitive 
basis. Residents receive their training at University Hospital and Baltimore Veterans 
Affairs and Mercy Medical Centers in addition to numerous ambulatory sites. Most first year 
residents continue their training in internal medicine for an additional two years, thus 
becoming eligible for certification as diplomates of the American Board of Internal Medi- 
cine. All residents receive intense clinical training in primary care and the medical sub- 
specialties in a variety of ambulatory and inpatient settings under close guidance of the 
department's faculty. While completing the broad core curriculum, residents have the 
opportunity to explore clinical and basic science research areas or engage in individualized 
electives. Residents are expected to develop their leadership, teaching and professional 
skills while gaining expertise in the vast expanse of internal medicine.

QENERAL INTERNAL MEDICINE 

Division of General Internal Medicine 
Assistant Professor and Acting Head 
Louis J. Domenici, MD 

Our concept of the general internist at this institution is that o( an individual who is: 
1 ) skilled in all facets of health care, both acute and chronic, as well as the ambulatory and 
inpatient level; 2) an educator of peers, students and the public; 3) interested in the impact 
of health care delivery and its evaluation; 4) an able administrator capable of management 
decision making and planning; 5) an active participant in the affairs of the community. In 
addition, the division of general internal medicine provides education, clinical training and 
research experience for medical students and graduate trainees to the fellowship level. 

The goal of the General Internal Medicine Program is to prepare physicians 
through inpatient, ambulatory and elective experiences during the students' clinical years 
that continues with an extensive graduate medical education program. The division's fac- 
ulty deliver a wide range of primary and consultative health care services for ambulatory 
and hospitalized patients at university clinical sites, which are also used for student and res- 
ident medical training. These clinical sites offer health care to university campus profes- 
sionals, senior, veterans, and the inner city indigent. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research interests within the division are broad and include curriculum development 
and evaluation in ambulatory education, utilization of health care by the elderly, evalua- 
tion of physician and patient behavior relevant to preventive practices, occupational expo- 
sure to asbestos and lead, nutrition among hospitalized patients, and areas of primary care 
services to women. 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Selected ambulatory primary care elective experiences are offered as part of the senior

campus and at affiliated medical institutions. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

The graduate medical education program in internal medicine educates and trains physi 
cians in the principles and practices of general internal medicine. Our intent is to prepare 
clinicians by providing training via a broad internal medicine curriculum. Specialized train 
ing experiences are encouraged and are presently available in medical consultation and risk 
assessment, preventive care, rehabilitation or occupational medicine, as well as health set

vices research. Students and residents are supervised by a team of clinician educators, prac- 
titioners and scientists in the program. The faculty include general internists, geriatricians, 
psychiatrists, epidemiologists, clinical pharmacists, primary care nurse clinicians and social 
workers. 

QEOQRAPHIC MEDICINE 

Division of Geographic Medicine 

Professor and Head 

Myron M. Levine, MD, DTPH 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

Postgraduate fellowships in geographic medicine are offered in conjunction with the divi- 
sion of infectious diseases. Fellows spend their first year doing clinical rotations on the infec- 
tious diseases consultation services at the University Hospital, the Baltimore Veterans 
Affairs Medical Center, the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems 
and the University of Maryland Cancer Center. The second year is spent in clinical or lab- 
oratory research under the supervision of faculty members in the division. 

Research may be conducted in the laboratories of the division in Baltimore or in 
one of the division's field areas in Chile, Peru or Venezuela. The division is closely tied to 
the Center for Vaccine Development. Laboratories are fully equipped for work in molecu- 
lar genetics, immunology, antigen purification, routine and enteric microbiology, para- 
sitology (including animal studies) and antimicrobial sensitivity testing. Faculty research 
interests include the pathogenesis and epidemiology of enteric organisms such as Vibrio 
cholerae and other vibrios, E. coli Salmonella, Shigella, Yersinia, rotavirus, Giardia and Cryp- 
tosporidium. Much of the research effort is directed towards developing vaccines against 
these enteric pathogens as well as vaccine testing against malaria and AIDS. The division 
maintains a close relationship with the department of epidemiology and preventive medi- 
cine where fellows may take courses in epidemiology and biostatistics during their training. 
Application for fellowships is made to Dr. J. Glenn Morris, fellowship program director. 

QERONTOLOQY 

Division of Gerontology 
Professor and Head 
Andrew P. Goldberg, MD 

The goals of the gerontology division at the University of Maryland School of Medicine are 
to teach students and house staff the principles of gerontology and geriatric medicine and 
to train fellows and junior faculty for academic careers in gerontologic research and clini- 
cal geriatric medicine at university medical centers. Research and clinical training are 
guided by the principle that the division should advance the knowledge base necessary for 
the practice of geriatric medicine and research in basic aspects of gerontology. Our long- 
term goal is to translate research into clinical strategies that provide optimal medical care 
for the elderly. The gerontology division provides broad-based clinical and research train-

ing in geriatric medicine to medical students, house staff and fellows. There is a strong 
emphasis placed on clinical research and biomedical investigation in the biology of aging 
and the prevention of cardiovascular disease in clinical trials, which examine the effects of 
exercise training and nutritional interventions on the functional capacity of older patients. 
This enriched academic environment allows trainees to learn skills of clinical and basic bio- 
medical investigation for careers in gerontology and clinical geriatric medicine. 

MEDC 545-23. Geriatric Medicine Elective. There is a wide spectrum of research, clini- 
cal and educational programs for students, house staff, fellows and physicians interested in 
clinical training and research in gerontology and geriatric medicine. There are opportuni- 
ties for research training in: 1 ) exercise physiology and nutrition in the management of car- 
diovascular disease risk factors in high-risk older patients; 2 ) rehabilitation and longitudinal 
management of the elderly to maintain independence and prevent institutionalization; and 
3) basic mechanisms of age-related declines in cardiovascular, metabolic and muscu- 
loskeletal function. Trainees work closely with faculty members in a research curriculum 
that provides mentored training in clinical and basic scientific investigation and in the con- 
duct of clinical trials. A Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) pro- 
vides resources for training in basic, biomedical, clinical and health services research 
focused on the prevention of cardiovascular disease in the elderly and the rehabilitation of 
frail elderly with stroke, multi-system disease and geriatric syndromes. Academic programs 
in the GRECC seek to increase the basic knowledge of the aging process and prevention of 
cardiovascular disease through targeted interventions. Knowledge gained from these stud- 
ies is imparted to health care providers, students and trainees through system-wide educa- 
tional programs. 

The clinical programs teach trainees to manage healthy older people as well as 
patients with a wide spectrum of acute and chronic medical diseases. Instruction is provided 
in primary, consultative and long-term care of patients in various clinical facilities o{ the 
University of Maryland Medical System. Trainees learn the physiology of aging and prin- 
ciples of geriatric assessment, treatment and care of the elderly in ambulatory medical prac- 
tices, on acute in-patient services, in geriatric rehabilitation units and in a comprehensive 
home care program for frail, home-bound patients. There is clinical training in geropsychi- 
atry to learn counseling, psychopharmacologic and ethical issues in the management of 
older patients with mental illness. This approach provides wide clinical exposure and train- 
ing in relevant skills tor an academic career or clinical practice in geriatric medicine. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIP TRAINING 

The division has an accredited fellowship training program funded by the National Insti- 
tute on Aging that focuses on research examining the effects of exorcise a\^\ nutritional 
interventions on the pathophysiology of type II diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and 
changes in body composition with aging. Post-graduate training emphasizes biomedical ^nA 
clinical research in the pathophysiology of aging-related diseases and the prevention ol c ai 
diovasculai disease and disability through exercise and dietary rehabilitation so ai risk 
elderly are able to improve functional independence. Fellows completing post graduate 
training in gerontology are eligible tor board cert itic.it ion in geriatric medic ine.

HEMATOLOGY AND ONCOLOGY 

Division of Hematology/Oncology 
Professor and Head 
David A. Van Echo, MD 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Fourth Year 

HEMA 541 '01. Clinical Elective. Broad clinical experience in both malignant and non- 
malignant hematologic disorders is available. Students perform hematology consultations 
with fellows and senior staff and have the opportunity to attend multiple clinical and lab- 
oratory conferences within the University of Maryland Cancer Center. Extensive experi- 
ence in bone marrow aspiration, biopsy and interpretation is provided. Rotations are for a 
minimum of four weeks. 

MEDC 549'01. Medical Oncology Electives. Two different medical oncology electives 
are available: 1) students may choose a subinternship on the inpatient service of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Cancer Center. This provides students and postgraduate physicians 
with in-depth studies of the diagnosis, natural history and treatment of human cancers. Stu- 
dents will take an active role in the day-to-day management of patients on an inpatient can- 
cer ward and will work closely with the attending and hematology /oncology fellow; 2) 
clerkships in oncology provide close interactions with fellows and oncology attendings on 
the oncology consult service. The wide diversity of internal medicine diseases seen during 
the natural history of many cancers makes this an intense course in the treatment of many 
internal medicine problems common to adult patients. Clerkships on the medical oncology 
consultation service provide interaction with other specialties in the management of as yet 
undiagnosed patients as well as the early detection, diagnosis and staging of malignancy. 
Individuals on clerkships are expected to attend a large number of conferences available on 
a weekly basis that provide didactic information about natural history, new treatments and 
evolutionary changes in the laboratory understanding of neoplasia. 

Research Electives. Summer research electives in various aspects of hematologic malig- 
nancies are available. Opportunities are available to work in the cell component therapy 
section of the University of Maryland Cancer Center (a specialized transfusion service), an 
active cytogenetics laboratory, an immunology laboratory studying antigenic characteris- 
tics of malignant cells, as well as the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), elec- 
tron microscopy laboratory and laboratories engaged in the study of leukemic cell 
differentiation and cellular pharmacology. Stipends may be available.

INFECTIOUS DISEASES 

Division of Infectious Diseases 
Professor and Head 
John W. Warren, MD 

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 

Fourth Year 

INFE 54 1 '0 1 . Infectious Diseases Elective. The discipline of infectious diseases is uncom- 
mon in internal medicine in that it is not restricted to one organ system. Indeed the types 
of patients seen by the Infectious Diseases Consultative Service are patients in virtually all 
departments of the hospital. These patients are often among the most acutely ill and often 
pose the most difficult diagnostic enigmas within the hospital. These presentations are more 
than an academic challenge; many infectious diseases can be cured and the patient restored 
to previous health. 

A practical working knowledge of clinical infectious diseases has become 
absolutely critical for the following reasons: ( 1 ) we have seen a huge increase in the num- 
bers of immunosuppressed people, not only from HIV infection but also from the substan- 
tial increase in bone marrow and solid organ transplant recipients, the more aggressive use 
of cytotoxic chemotherapy and more invasive and life-sustaining ICU modalities; (2) the 
explosion of new antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial agents requiring us to be familiar 
with their spectrum of action and toxicities; (3) the proliferation of multiple-antibiotic 
resistant pathogens which presents us with virtually untreatable infections; and (4) the 
focus upon infection control, cost containment and quality of practice which have arisen 
with the increased attention to the economics of health care. 

The diagnosis of infections and proper management of patients with these diseases 
are taught by exposure of the student to a broad spectrum of clinical problems. The appro- 
priate use of microbiology, virology and serology laboratories will be stressed. The student 
will see consultations under the supervision of a full-time attending at either the Univer- 
sity Hospital or Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Specialized programs are available in 
AIDS, pediatrics, at Shock Trauma and at the University of Maryland Cancer Center. Two 
clinical infectious disease conferences for faculty, house staff and students are held weekly. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

The postgraduate fellowship is a combined program offered by the divisions of infectious 
diseases and geographic medicine. The first year is clinically oriented and is spent consult- 
ing on patients with problems related to infectious diseases. A very diverse experience is 
obtained through rotations at the University Hospital and Veterans Affairs Medical Cen- 
ter, the Shock Trauma Center, the University oi Maryland Cancer Center, the solid organ 
transplant service, the inpatient HIV unit and the NIH. Fellows see consults and supervise 
residents and medical students; and spend much of their time teaching and providing 
patient care. This is all performed under the guidance of full-time faculty, many of whom 
are experts in subspecialties within infectious diseases, such as infections in transplant 
recipients, neutropenic host infections, surgical infections and infections in HIV-infected 
people. The second and subsequent years of the program are oriented toward research. 
Research interests in the division include molecular pathogenesis of bacterial infections, 

80 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



physiology oi acute inflammation, CMV, HIV, papilloma virus infections, infections in 
cancer patients or severely traumatized patients, nosocomial infections and mechanisms of 
action and pharmacokinetics of antibiotics. Research interests within geographic medicine 
include microbial genetics, pathogenesis of diarrheal diseases, pathogenesis of malarial 
infections, and vaccine development. Application is made through the fellowship program 
director.

time concentration on renal and body fluid physiology with the students using themselves 
as laboratory subjects. Studies of renal function under different circumstances, mechanisms 
of water conservation, sodium balance and acid-base balance will be studied. Laboratory 
sessions are held daily. Appropriate case presentations will illustrate disturbances of physi- 
ology. This class is limited to 16 students and offers an opportunity for prolonged and close 
contact with division of nephrology faculty as well as experience in laboratory measure- 
ments and observations of renal function through personal in vivo testing. 

Fourth Year 

NEPH 541 '01. Clinical Nephrology Elective. Students who have completed their 
required junior electives in medicine, surgery, pediatrics and obstetrics may elect a clinical 
rotation in nephrology. One-month to three-month electives will be accepted. The student 
is expected to become thoroughly familiar with the approach to patients with kidney dis- 
eases and acquainted with clinical procedures. Each student will present at one nephrology 
conference. The typical rotation involves the student in seeing consultations with fellows 
and attending nephrologists, rounds on inpatients, Renal Clinic activities and exposure to 
the dialysis program. Students with special interests in particular aspects of kidney function 
or kidney disease may be permitted to pursue those interests after consulting with the divi- 
sion head. 

NEPH 541-03. Nephrology Student Fellowship Elective, Maryland General Hospital. 
Students are exposed to the practice of clinical nephrology and to the management oi acute 

and chronic renal failure. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

Quali tied physicians may apply for full- time fellowships in nephrology. Although aone-yeai 
clinical fellowship may be specially arranged, the standard fellowship is for two years oi train 
ingwith the firs! year structured to produce broad experience in clinical nephrology, its pro 
ceduresand its literature and basic experience in the research lab. The second year is largely 
elective, permitting fellows to pursue their chosen direction with planning and supervision.

Members of the division take part in teaching the physiology course with emphasis on the 
clinical application to basic respiratory physiology. This includes an introduction to clini- 
cal medicine and the sessions in the course on correlative medicine. 

Second Year 

In the systemic pathology course, two weeks are devoted to the respiratory system. The 
teaching of clinical medicine is integrated with epidemiology, pharmacology and microbi- 
ology and is closely correlated with the teaching of physiology and pathology. This is not a 
course in respiratory diseases, but the most common and important groups of diseases are 
included. 

Fourth Year 

PULM 541 '01. Pulmonary Diseases Elective. Fourth-year students participate in all of 
the activities of the division under the supervision of fellows and faculty. They see patients 
in the wards, in consultations and in the outpatient clinic. The students learn to interpret 
tests of pulmonary function and attend all of the conferences in which fellows and faculty 
participate. The emphasis is on the correlation of clinical features with pathophysiologic 
and roentgenographic features. 

PULM 541 '05. Medical Intensive Care Elective, University of Maryland Hospital. The 

goal of this course is to provide students with clinical experience in managing patients seen 
in a medical intensive care unit. Students will function at the intern level as primary physi- 
cians and will work with the resident in charge, as well as the attending physician. Students 
will receive a sound background in circulatory and respiratory physiology. They will be 
exposed to various invasive techniques, including arterial line insertions, Swan-Ganz 
catheterizations and chest tube placements. In addition there will be exposure to the use of 
mechanical ventilation in the critically ill patient. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

Stipends are available for the support of nine fellows at the current University of Maryland 
Medical System postgraduate scale. Three years of training in internal medicine are 
required. The goal of the program is to train physicians who are competent in the subspe- 
cialties of pulmonary and critical care medicine, and in basic or clinical investigation.

vice. Weekly rheumatology grand rounds and weekly joint conferences are open to stu- 
dents. 

Fourth'Year Students and House Officers 

The rheumatology division offers a clinical elective for senior medical students and med- 
ical house officers designed to present the spectrum of rheumatic disease and approaches to 
diagnosis and management. Integration of clinical features with the mechanisms of disease 
processes is accomplished through informal tutorial sessions as well as didactic lectures. The 
rationale for the various management programs including drug therapies, physical medicine 
and orthopedic surgery is emphasized. Experience is gained in performance of diagnostic 
procedures (e.g., arthrocentesis) and in interpretation of relevant Laboratory data. 

POSTGRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS 

The division of rheumatology and clinical immunology offers a two-year clinical fellowship 
and a three-year fellowship that emphasize training in both the clinical and research aspects 
of rheumatology. The purpose of the three-year fellowship is to produce physician-scien-

biology and immunology. Emphasis is placed on medical aspects of microbiology and 
immunology. In addition, selected Graduate School courses are available to medical stu- 
dents in all years. Individual faculty members are available to provide instruction and guid- 
ance throughout the medical curriculum. 

The department also offers the PhD degree and encourages students to enroll in 
the MD/PhD program. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

The research programs within the department of microbiology and immunology are ori- 
ented toward the molecular biology of infectious agents, foreign invader-host cell interac- 
tions and the molecular and cellular analysis of the immune response. Specific projects in 
immunology and cell biology include molecular analysis of antibody and T-cell receptor 
genes; lymphocyte activation, differentiation and ontogeny; autoimmune diseases and 
immunology of aging; and cellular and viral oncogenes. Projects on microbial disease mech- 
anisms include studies on regulation of gene expression in procaryotic and eukaryotic sys- 
tems, molecular genetics of pathogenic bacteria; studies on latent virus infections including 
the human immunodeficiency virus; pathogenesis of vector-borne infectious agents; and 
new strategies for development of vaccines. Medical students are encouraged to participate 
in elective research programs of their interests. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

Second Year 

Microbiology and immunology faculty have major teaching responsibility in the second- 
year Immunology, Host Defenses, Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology and Preventive 
Medicine block (Block VII). This is the first block of the second year and is eight weeks in 
duration. When appropriate, faculty also participate in teaching the Pathophysiology and 
Therapeutics block (Block VIII). 

A number of Graduate School courses are available to qualified students. Inter- 
ested students should contact the department for details. 



Neurology 

Department of Neurology 
Professor and Chair 
Kenneth P. Johnson, MD 

Neurology is the study of the normal and diseased nervous system that includes central, 
peripheral and neuromuscular systems. Faculty members participate in courses in all four 
years of undergraduate medical education. Though few medical students will choose careers 
specializing in medical or surgical neurology or in the basic neurosciences, all medical grad- 
uates must have substantial understanding of the basic structure and function of the ner- 
vous system to perform a satisfactory neurological examination, recognize and treat the 
many common neurological disorders and know when to refer the patient to a neurological 

84 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



specialist. Of special importance is the ability to distinguish between functional and organic 
neurological symptoms or signs. 

The discipline of neurology has maintained close ties with basic science and, by its 
complex but logical nature, has typified the most scholarly aspects of medicine. Recent 
methodological and scientific advances have created a new and therapeutically oriented 
specialty that is represented in the philosophy and goals of this department. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Research activities at both the basic neuroscience and the clinical levels play a central role 
in the activity of the department. A broad program in neuroimmunology and biology 
includes a Demyelinating Diseases Clinical Center grant from NIH. In the last eight years 
the department has been one of the most active centers in the United States and Europe in 
the conduct of trials of new forms of therapy for multiple sclerosis. Basic science and clini- 
cal studies in the demyelinating diseases are closely integrated. 

Department members are also active in the study of cerebrovascular disease and its 
consequences. A Clinical Stroke Center funded by NIH has been established. Special 
emphasis has been placed on the epidemiology of stroke and the application of computer 
sciences to the diagnosis and treatment of stroke. There is a strong related departmental 
program to study language disorders. A very active program in diseases of peripheral nerve 
and muscle has been undertaken as well with special emphasis on the pathogenesis of Guil- 
lain-Barre syndrome and the treatment of myasthenia gravis. A highly developed program 
is focused on epilepsy with special interest in cases that fail medical therapy and must be 
considered for neurosurgical removal of a seizure focus. Active research at the molecular 
level is underway into neurologic degenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer's disease and 
Parkinsonism. 

An expanded program in neurorehabilitation has been developed. Rehabilitation 
sites for neurologically damaged patients are at Montebello Rehabilitation Center and the 
James Lawrence Kernan Hospital in Baltimore. Departmental faculty provide most of the 
medical care to these patients. Specialized research programs are being developed in the 
rehabilitation of stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis patients. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

First and Second Years 

The department of neurology faculty teaches in the first-year Neurosciences and Functional 

Systems blocks, and in the second-year Pathophysiology and Therapeutics block. Selected 
faculty members also teach in other areas such as the Cell and Molecular Biology block in 
the first year and in blocks where epidemiology and immunology are taught, based upon 
their particular research interests and expertise. 

Third Year

ans Affairs Medical Center and the James Lawrence Kernan Hospital. The neurologic 
examination of the patient is emphasized, as well as the study and application of a wide vari- 
ety of specialized neurologic diagnostic techniques. Each student will become proficient in 
taking a neurologic history, performing a neurologic exam, formulating a reasonable diag- 
nostic impression or differential diagnosis, a plan of investigation and management for sev- 
eral of the more common neurologic problems. (Neurology Faculty) 

NEUR 548. Neurological Research Electives. In all four undergraduate years, a limited 
number of students will have the opportunity to work with individual members of the 
department in the following areas: 1) cerebrovascular physiology; 2) neuromuscular 
research; 3) neurophysiology; 4) neurochemistry; 5) neurovirology and immunology; 
6) computers and neurology; 7) epilepsy; 8) degenerative disorders; and 9) molecular-biol- 
ogy and the nervous system. (Drs. Koski, Panitch and Kittner) 

STUDENT FELLOWSHIPS 

Students who have completed their first, second or third years and have an interest in neu- 
rologic sciences may apply for additional training in clinical neurology or in one of the 
research laboratories of the department. Qualified students may receive remuneration as fel- 
lows for the 10-week fellowships taken during vacation periods. 

GRADUATE STUDIES 

There is a fully approved three-year residency training program in the specialty of neurol- 
ogy at the University of Maryland Medical System. This provides for clinical training as 
well as rotation through the associated basic science disciplines. In addition, fellowships are 
available for subspecialty neurology training, such as EEG and epilepsy, EMG and periph- 
eral nerve disorders, stroke, neuroimmunology and neurorehabilitation. For further infor- 
mation contact the department chairman. 

REHABILITATION MEDICINE 

Division of Rehabilitation Medicine 
Professor and Head 
Kenneth P. Johnson, MD 

The School of Medicine has developed a research and training center in the area of neuro- 
logic rehabilitation with the full knowledge that current life-saving expertise in the fields 
of stroke and trauma (head and spinal cord injury), combined with major technological 
advances in medical and surgical neurology, has saved and will continue to provide life to 

86 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 






the most severely disabled patients. There is no indication that the incidence of neurolog- 
ical disability will decrease; more likely it will increase. Specialized research programs are 
under way in the areas of head injury recovery, controlled reassessment of rehabilitation 
techniques and improved communication in aphasic patients using computer-assisted 
language. 

The division of rehabilitation medicine is committed to the education of medical 
students, resident physicians, physical therapists and other allied health professionals. 
Expectations for the next decade indicate that the rehabilitation field in this country will 
require specialized training programs in addition to physiatry residency programs to sup- 
ply qualified professionals in neurological rehabilitation. Accordingly, neurological reha- 
bilitation probably will depend on other neurologists, internists, pediatricians, and 
neurological and orthopedic surgeons to fulfill the need. These physicians will need not 
only appropriate training in rehabilitation management, but exposure to the frontiers of 
fundamental research in neuroscience, particularly in the areas of neuroplasticity and 
recovery of function. To this end, a two-year fellowship program in neurologic rehabilita- 
tion has been established. 



Obstetrics and Qynecology 

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology 

Professor and Chair 

M. Carlyle Crenshaw Jr., MD 

The department provides a learning experience that encourages each student, regardless of 
ultimate career choice, to develop professional attitudes, diagnostic skills and knowledge 
relevant to the human female and to her sexual and reproductive systems. This experience 
enables each student to assume more effective responsibility for the general delivery of 
health care to the adolescent, adult and aging female and to the newborn. 

The student is taught to recognize those patients who require special gynecologic 
consultation. Health-related social problems such as family planning and sexually trans- 
mitted diseases are discussed as well as other aspects of population control, sexual difficul- 
ties, sterilization and induced abortion. 

The educational material is presented so as to familiarize students with all sources 
of knowledge relevant to these subject areas. Students may extend their knowledge <m<.\ 
skills in a direction and depth appropriate to current and ultimate career goals. Students .ire 
also encouraged to take electives in basic, clinical and social research. 

The service roles focus on the general areas of obstetrical .m<\ gynecologic care. 
Obstetrics deals with a hi^h-risk pregnancy population and provides excellent education.il 
opportunities for both student and resident. Specialty clinics in endocrinology, complicated 
pregnancy, cancer, pre- and postoperative evaluation and family planning provide specific, 
specialized areas of instruction in addition to serving large numbers of patients, r.uua 
detection and therapy play a major part in the gynecologic program. 

The department utilizes audiovisual aids to enhance the educational experience 
ot both medic. il students and residents. The faculty also contributes to the postgraduate edu- 
cational programs at the University ot Maryland Medical System and throughout the state.

lecular Biology and Functional Systems blocks, and in the second-year Pathophysiology/ 
Therapeutics block. 

Third Year 

OBST. 530. Clinical clerkship. Students are assigned to obstetrics and gynecology for a 
period of six weeks. As clinical clerks, they participate in the original diagnostic studies, 
pelvic exam, surgical procedures and postoperative care of hospitalized patients. Instruction 
in prenatal and gynecologic outpatient care is accomplished in the outpatient department. 
Seminars and departmental conferences with the attending staff and house officers are 
employed for teaching the art of correlating observations, diagnosis and therapy. Frequent 
and close contact with faculty is achieved by means of a preceptorial system that assigns a 
group of two or three students to a member of the faculty for the entire clerkship. As an 
alternative to the clerkship at the University of Maryland Medical System, a similar instruc- 
tional program is offered to a limited number of students by the obstetrics and gynecology 
departments at Mercy Medical Center, Harbor Hospital Center and Greater Baltimore 
Medical Center. (Staff)

operating room. Students are expected to gain experience with diagnostic instruments used 
in ophthalmological evaluations. Patients with a wide range of diseases are seen in the clinic 
where faculty with expertise in all ophthalmological subspecialty areas are present. Con- 
ferences and grand rounds are included in the program. Self- instructional aids are available. 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

A variety of clinical trials funded by NIH and industry are on-going in the department. 
Infant vision, retinopathy of prematurity, ischemic optic neuropathy, glaucoma, and AIDS 
trials are currently in progress. 

Basic research efforts of the department of ophthalmology currently concentrate 
on ocular changes from diabetes mellitus and ocular toxicity of radiant energy. Other proj- 
ects include biochemical effects of aldose reductase and specific inhibitors on the lens, 
including oxygen toxicity to the lens, particularly as related to light-induced damage. Also, 
projects related to hormonal control of retinal pigment epithelium, as well as experimental 
ocular pathology, form a major part of our research program. Elective study opportunities 
exist for qualified students in this active ophthalmic biochemical research program. Post- 
doctoral fellowships in ophthalmic biochemistry are also available. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

A three-year residency program providing clinical training is offered at the University of 
Maryland Medical System, with rotations to the Baltimore and Wilmington, Delaware VA 
Medical Centers. Appointment is by application to the department of ophthalmology, Uni- 
versity of Maryland Medical System. 



Pathology 

Department of Pathology 
Professor and Chair 
Benjamin F. Trump, MD 

The primary goal of the department of pathology is the better understanding of human dis- 
ease with emphasis on mechanisms of disease and changes occurring at the subcellular level 
and in molecular terms. The student achieves this goal in three phases: 1 ) by acquiring the 
basic principles of pathology and applying those principles to the diagnosis and study of 
health care delivery as expressed in diagnostic areas such as surgical pathology, clinical 
pathology, cytology, forensic pathology and autopsy pathology; 2) by establishing a philos- 
ophy of critical evaluation and judgment concerning the problems of health and disease in 
humans; and 5) by developing feelings of personal responsibility a\k\ ethi< s for the pra< tice 
of medicine. 

The department's philosophy is that the study of disease includes both structure 
and function and is earned out from the level of the patient to that oi the molec ule. 

The student is exposed to anatomical and clinical hospital pathology services with 
additional training at Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical c 'enter .mA other local hospitals. 

COURSE OFFER I N< 



UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

The department of pathology faculty teach primarily in the second year in the Immunol- 
ogy, Host Defenses, Infectious Disease, Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine block, and 
in the Pathophysiology and Therapeutics block. Faculty also participate in other freshman- 
year blocks teaching. Pathophysiology and the study of the mechanisms of disease as well 
as morphology are stressed. 

ELECTIVES 

Supplementing the core program are more than 12 elective course offerings for medical stu- 
dents. These opportunities span a wide range of departmental activities from system-ori- 
ented courses such as renal, pulmonary, neurological or cardiovascular pathology to 
process-oriented instruction such as environmental pathology, carcinogenesis and research 
seminars. The latter are conducted with the aid of a number of guest speakers who are lead- 
ing authorities in their fields. Research and clinical preceptorships are encouraged. 

Other courses are of more general interest and include seminars in clinical pathol- 
ogy or clinical clerkships in Baltimore area hospitals. Medical students also have access to 
courses in experimental pathology such as histochemistry, tissue culture or pathological bio- 
chemistry. 

Advanced Accelerated Program in Pathology (AAPP) . The AAPP admitted the first 
group of students in the fall of 1975 in an effort to permit early specialization and target-ori- 
ented education. The track in pathology begins in the freshman year. It makes use of all the 
resources of the department of pathology, and includes three types of experience: 1) expo- 
sure to the practice of pathology; 2) study of one selected field of emphasis; and 3) exposure 
to research. Up to five students may be admitted during their first year. They are required 
to fulfill all the requirements of the track; however, they are not committed to seek a career 
in the field of pathology. The training in the track program should provide the student with 
the knowledge of a one-year residency program. Time spent in training within the track 
program can count toward elective or residency time. (Dr. Mergner) 

RESEARCH INTERESTS 

Research efforts in the department of pathology focus upon the pathobiologic mechanisms 
of human disease at the cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. Current projects involve 
a broad spectrum of diseases which include cancer, immunologic disease, heart disease, 
shock, infectious disease and aging. 

Cancer research efforts focus upon accurately defining the sequence of events 
within cells following their exposure to confirmed carcinogens, mutagens and environ- 
mental toxins. This involves the development of varied strategies for assaying human risk 
from environmental pollutants and the development of animal and fish models for human 
disease with environmental etiologies. 

Research efforts in heart disease are directed toward providing a definitive descrip- 
tion of the mechanisms that lead to cell death subsequent to the depletion or complete loss 
of oxygen supply. Identification of parameters whose manipulation might result in imped- 
ing or halting cell death and development of improved methods of therapy for preventing 
the damaging effects of shock are integral components of this research. 



90 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



Faculty research projects focus on the delineation of the mechanism by which 
microbes invade and destroy human cells; the identification of microbial antigens with the 
capacity to elicit an autoimmune disease in the host; the study of mechanisms of immuno- 
logic injury as related to complement-mediated lysis; immune complex diseases and autoim- 
munity; and the analysis of the events leading to cell death as a consequence of the normal 
process of aging. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

The department of pathology offers programs of study leading to the PhD degree or the com- 
bined MD/PhD degree in medical pathology, the PhD degree in forensic toxicology and the 
MS degree in pathology. Areas of concentration offered in the MS degree program are med- 
ical pathology (including anatomic pathology and clinical chemistry) and forensic toxi- 
cology. The master's and doctoral programs train individuals for research and service in 
pathology and related fields. Research programs use modern techniques, including x-ray 
microanalysis, quantitative microscopy, flow cytometry with cell-sorting capability, spec- 
trofluorometry and calcium imaging. 

The program leading to the PhD in medical pathology includes comprehensive 
training in experimental pathology with emphasis on the pathogenesis of cell injury and car- 
cinogenesis; environmental pathology; and immunology. Students working toward combined 
MD/PhD degrees in medical pathology are enrolled simultaneously in the School of Medi- 
cine and the Graduate School in specially tailored programs designed to meet their specific 
goals and research interests as physician-scientists. The PhD program in forensic toxicol- 
ogy (legal medicine) includes comprehensive training in toxicology, gross anatomic pathol- 
ogy related to toxicology, instrumental analysis, medicinal chemistry and pharmacology. 

The program leading to an MS degree in pathology is highly individualized. Con- 
centrations in medical pathology and forensic toxicology are designed for students seeking 
training in laboratory work and research methods. Training in anatomic pathology, one of 
three such programs in the United States, prepares students for certification as a patholo- 
gist's assistant. Training in clinical chemistry prepares individuals for certification in clin- 
ical chemistry and for advanced work in this discipline. 

For details of admission requirements and course offerings, see the pathology sec- 
tion in the Graduate School catalog.

Pharmacology 



Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics 

Professor and Chair 

Edson X. Albuquerque, MD, PhD 

The department's teaching objectives are to provide medical and graduate students with 
those principles underlying the distribution, metabolism, mechanism of action and toxic- 
ity of therapeutic agents or substances. An overriding goal of the medical school teaching 
program is to convey the fundamental principles of basic and clinical pharmacology and 
therapeutics through an interdisciplinary teaching effort which brings together (acuity from 
this department and those from other basic science and clinical departments. The faculty 
of the department of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics, therefore, provide sub- 
stantial leadership and participation in the Pathophysiology and Therapeutics block given 
during the second year of the medical curriculum. When needed, the department also pro- 
vides its teaching expertise to other courses throughout the four years of the medical 
curriculum. 

GRADUATE PROGRAM 

At the graduate level, there are three defined areas oi study (tracks): oncopharmacology, 
neuropharmacology and pharmacological biotechnology. All three tracks incorporate: 
1 ) training in modern techniques of pharmacology (molecular biology , receptor bioc hem

Psychiatry 

Department of Psychiatry 
Professor and Chair 
John A. Talbott, MD 

The goal of undergraduate psychiatric education is to assist students to acquire an under- 
standing of and an appreciation for the application of behavioral and psychiatric principles 
in patient care and health maintenance through an exposure to a progressive sequence of 
intellectual stimulations, clinical experiences and appropriate professional socialization 
and within the interdisciplinary framework of the new curriculum. More specifically, the 
curriculum aims to assist the student in: 1 ) acquiring a foundation of knowledge regarding 
the biological, psychological, sociological and humanistic aspects o( the practice o( medi- 
cine; 2) mastering basic interpersonal and psychiatric skills relevant to the management of 
patients with medical and/or emotional illness; and 3) emulating attitudes and values that 
enhance the professional roles and practices of a physician. 

UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL PROGRAM 

First Year 

Psychiatry faculty teach in Blocks II, V and VI of the freshman curriculum. 

Second Year 

Psychopathology. This course is taught as part of the Neuroscience module of the Patho 
physiology and Therapeutics block in the second year and through additional interdisci- 
plinary teaching in other relevant systems (e.g., cardiovascular, endocrine, etc.) within the 
new curriculum. The core course is designed to provide students with the basic concepts of 
clinical psychiatry, including psychopathology and psychiatric treatment of mental disor- 
ders. The course format is based on bnet lectures, audiovisual demonstrations (videotapes, 
films) small group discussions, problem-solving sessions and assigned work for self-stud^ , 



C O U R S I OFFERINGS • 



Psychiatric Interviewing/History Taking. This course is part of the second-year Intro- 
duction to Clinical Practice (ICP) course, which is devoted to specialty physical diagnosis 
and examination. The psychiatric course is devoted to psychiatric interviewing, history tak- 
ing and mental status examination. The course uses a small group format in which groups 
of five students meet with an instructor for six two-hour sessions. A general introductory 
lecture is followed by the small group sessions where each student performs a psychiatric 
interview, observes fellow students performing interviews, reviews interviewing techniques 
and psychopathologic concepts with the small group leader. 

Third Year 

Junior Psychiatry Clerkship (6 weeks). The junior clerkship in psychiatry is the main 
clinical psychiatric experience for University of Maryland medical school students. It is 
generally taken in the third year and is a six-week intensive experience combining inpa- 
tient, outpatient and consultation experiences in which the student is exposed to an array 
of psychopathologies in a variety of treatment settings. Pharmacologic, psychotherapeutic, 
biological and psychosocial modalities are utilized. The core experiences are broken down 
as follows: 60 percent of time in inpatient settings, 20 percent of time in ambulatory set- 
tings and 20 percent of time in didactic seminars and clinical case conferences. 

Students work under the preceptorship of a psychiatry attending and resident. Stu- 
dents are assigned approximately three patients from the inpatient service and serve as their 
primary therapist. This responsibility and involvement with patients provides an ideal set- 
ting in which the student may apply the biopsychosocial concepts learned in the first-year 
behavioral social sciences course with the concepts of psychopathology and clinical skills 
of psychiatric interviewing, history taking and mental status examination acquired in the 
second-year courses. The student assumes an integral role on the multidisciplinary team and 
ward milieu. 

Students are also given clinical exposure to patients with psychiatric or behavioral 
problems in a variety of other settings. These are generally comprised of four-hour per week 
assignments with psychiatric faculty in outpatient consultation settings. Current assign- 
ments include a university consultation-liaison service, an emergency walk-in clinic, addic- 
tion consultation service, a methadone clinic, a community mental health clinic, a 
university diagnostic and evaluation clinic, a psychiatric liaison to an HIV clinic, and sev- 
eral addiction outpatient settings. 

The scope of didactic courses includes six six-hour seminars in: psychopathology, 
psychotherapy modalities, consultation/liaison, child psychiatry, substance abuse and psy- 
chopharmacology, as well as a clinical case conference focusing on interviewing, diagnos- 
tic and treatment skills. 

Students are also assigned night-call with a psychiatric resident as part of their 
rotation. Evaluation is based upon individual preceptor evaluations (50 percent), a multi- 
ple-choice examination (30 percent) and an oral examination (20 percent) given by psy- 
chiatric faculty. 

The clerkship involves student assignments to the following training sites: Insti- 
tute of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (IPHB-UMMS), Walter P. Carter Center ( WPCC- 
UMAB), Spring Grove Hospital and the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Ernest C. Borden, MD 

The University of Maryland Cancer Center was established in 1982. Its history dates back 
to 1965 when the National Cancer Institute's Division of Cancer Treatment created the 
Baltimore Cancer Research Center at the Baltimore U.S. Public Health Service Hospital. 
In 1974 the center moved to the University of Maryland at Baltimore (UMAB) and 
remained an intramural NCI program under contractual arrangement between the NCI and 
UMAB until 1982, when it became the University of Maryland Cancer Center. The clin- 
ical effort of the center was established as a separate clinical entity within the University of 
Maryland Medical System. Within the School of Medicine and the other UMAB schools 
the Cancer Center serves as the umbrella for all cancer-related activities on campus. The 
Cancer Center faculty have academic appointments in various clinical and basic science 
departments of the School of Medicine and other UMAB schools such as Pharmacy, Den- 
tistry and Social Work. 

Activities of the Cancer Center include basic and clinical cancer research, student 
and house officer teaching and a strong focus on aggressive treatment with intense patient 
care in the 56-bed inpatient and outpatient services of the Cancer Center. In addition to 
full-time attending services on medical oncology and hematology, Cancer Center faculty 
members provide a uniquely supportive program involving a multimodality approach to the 
treatment of patients with primary/secondary malignancy involving the central nervous 
system and lungs as well as patients on the gynecological and surgical services of oncology, 
genitourinary, otolaryngology and neuro-oncology. 

The University of Maryland Cancer Center is a strong participant in new drug 
development and performs research on new anticancer drugs. Virtually every important 
drug in use in oncology today has been tested in this program, and the center has contracts 
in both the public and private sectors with a commitment to clinical and laboratory 
research. Pilot studies and Phases I, II and III Trials are performed, which range from tot- 
ing efficacy and potential applicability of a given treatment program and establishing dose 
and toxicity limitations of new drugs, to comparing treatment programs tor superiority of 
treatment, toxicity and outcome. These studies tend to be definitive treatment programs 
that have major impact on the practice of oncology nationwide. The faculty has a strong 
commitment to interinstitutional cooperative scientific trials and cancer research. 

The Cancer Center's Laboratory o\ Immunology Research generated safety and 
efficacy data that played a key part in obtaining FDA approval tor clinical use of genetically 
engineered recombinant alpha interferon Since 1982 the Cancer C 'enter has played An 
important role in studies of acquired immunodeficiency syndromes (AIDS) and related 
disorders. 

Students and residents participate in weekly grand rounds and conferences, and 
students are encouraged to become involved in research projects with c )ancei t "enter fa< - 
ultv. The Cancer C Center sponsors an ongoing cancer research seminar series whk h attracts 
nationally known speakers.

Medical and Research Technology 

Department of Medical and Research Technology 
Professor and Chair 
Denise M. Harmening, PhD 

The department of medical and research technology currently offers majors in clinical lab- 
oratory sciences (medical technology) and biomedical science/biotechnology. These pro- 
grams combine the advantages of a major research university with the benefits of small 
classes and a high faculty-to-student ratio. As a component of a large academic health cen- 
ter, the department of medical and research technology affords students unusual opportu- 
nities to participate in a stimulating educational environment while gaining practical 
experience in clinical laboratory science and biotechnology. 

Clinical laboratory sciences provide information crucial to the diagnosis and pre- 
vention of disease, the management of patient therapy and maintenance of health. Clini- 
cal laboratory scientists are involved in performing laboratory procedures ranging from 
identification of microorganisms, to providing blood for emergency transfusion. 

Biomedical science focuses upon the discovery, development and production of 
chemicals, diagnostic products and biopharmaceuticals. The biotechnologist uses skills in 
molecular and cellular biology, immunology, protein chemistry and microbial fermentation 
to produce reagents and products used in industry, medicine and in basic and applied 
research. 

Students complete a two-year preprofessional curriculum at a regionally accred- 
ited community college or university of their choice. Those attending two-year institutions 
may transfer directly to the department of medical and research technology at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland at Baltimore. Most students complete the professional curriculum in two 
years; however, a three-year, part-time option is available for non-traditional students. 
Additionally, a categorical certification track is offered for students already possessing a 
bachelor's degree in biology, microbiology, chemistry or other scientific discipline. Upon 
completion of the program, students receive a bachelor of science degree in medical and 
research technology and are eligible for certification from national agencies such as ASCP 
orNCA. 

The clinical laboratory sciences concentration of study fulfills requirements set 
forth by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and is accred- 
ited by the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation on behalf of the 
American Medical Association. 

CLINICAL AFFILIATIONS 

During the final component of the program, students complete clinical practice courses in 
five specialty areas. Placement in clinical sites is guaranteed. 

The department is affiliated with 24 clinical facilities in the Baltimore-Washing- 
ton area. Clinical facilities include university-based and community hospitals and inde- 
pendent laboratories. 



108 • SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



RESEARCH AFFILIATIONS 

The biomedical science concentration requires students to complete three months of train- 
ing at two externship sites. The first of these is undertaken in the research laboratories of 
the University of Maryland at Baltimore, the Maryland Biotechnology Institute or other 
University of Maryland System campus with research programs in biotechnology. The sec- 
ond practica must be undertaken in either a large or small-scale industrial setting. 

The number and variety of clinical and research sites are assets that set the Uni- 
versity oi Maryland School of Medicine's clinical laboratory sciences and biomedical sci- 
ences majors apart from others, and allow students to experience several different work 
settings.

the pursuit of new knowledge. By tradition, students and teachers have certain rights and 
responsibilities which they bring to the academic community. While the following state- 
ments do not imply a contract between the teacher or the institution and the student, they 
are nevertheless conventions which should be central to the learning and teaching process.

demic integrity.

ably related to the course. In turn, they have the responsibility to encourage free and 
honest inquiry and expression on the part of students. 

C. Faculty members, consistent with the principles of academic freedom, have the respon- 
sibility to present courses that are consistent with their descriptions in the catalog of the

HUMAN RELATIONS CODE SUMMARY 

The University of Maryland at Baltimore has a Human Relations Code for use by the entire 
campus community. The code represents UMAB's commitment to human relations issues. 
The specific purposes of the code include: 

1 . Prevention or elimination of unlawful discrimination on the basis oi race, color, creed, 
sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, ancestry or national origin, physical or men- 
tal handicap, or exercise of rights secured by the First Amendment of the U.S. Consti- 
tution; and 

2. Establishing a timely, effective grievance procedure as an alternative to more lengthy 
formal processes for resolution of human relations issues. 

A Human Relations Committee was created to oversee the code. It is comprised 
of campus faculty, administrators and students and is advisory to the president of the cam- 
pus. The committee may institute educational programs and provide an open forum on 
human relations issues. In addition, the committee is charged with maintaining a media- 
tion, investigation and hearing process for specific complaints of discrimination brought by 
students, faculty or staff. The code describes the particulars of the hearing process. It is the 
intent of the code to provide a grievance procedure for an individual on campus who wants 
a cross-section of the campus community to investigate and mediate a problem without hav- 
ing to resort to complaints to external agencies such as the Maryland Commission on 
Human Relations, complaints under personnel rules or lawsuits. 

Copies of the Human Relations Code are available in the dean's office, the stu- 
dent affairs and USGA offices in the Baltimore Student Union, and the human resources 
management and affirmative action offices in the administration building. 

DISCLAIMER 

No provision of this publication shall be construed as a contract between any applicant or 
student and the University o{ Maryland at Baltimore. The university reserves the right to 
change any admission or advancement requirement at any time. The university further 
reserves the right to ask a student to withdraw at any time when it is considered to be in the 
best interest of the university.

notice.
